With April almost over, the real meat of migration fast approaches. At some point, everyone gets hit with a wave of winged travelers zooming towards their breeding or wintering ground. If that time hasn’t come for you yet, get ready.

Another weekend of work will keep me off the trail, but luckily Neotropical migrants need a long time to find their way to western NY. Corey will be leading a bird walk at the Queens Botanical Garden for NYC Audubon, and there may still be room for one more.

How about you? Where will you be this weekend and will you be birding? Share your plans in the comments below.

Whatever your plans this weekend, make time to enjoy SkyWatch Friday. Also be sure to come back Monday to share your best bird of the weekend!
