Don’t tell me that September is almost here. Pretty soon, winter will be on our doorsteps (at least those of us north of the Equator.) On the bright side, birds are coming back! How will you spend this final weekend of August and will you be birding? Share your plans in the comments below.
I dearly hope to get out and see something other than yard birds, not that there’s anything wrong with yard birds. Corey hopes to finally get into a boat for a pelagic trip this weekend; sixth time is the charm right? While Corey is hoping for low waves and clear skies, Charlie aspires to another look at his first Great Chalfield Little Egret, spotted from his bedroom window yesterday.
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!
Enjoy all of Corey’s amazing images of birds against a dawn sky
I’m going to try the heath moors of Wales. Trying for the last of the summer migrants and the grouse. Maybe I’ll get lucky and stumble on a Chough as well.
On my way up with family and friends to Round Valley, north of McCall, Idaho on my quest to see my first Pileated Woodpecker. I’ll also have a good chance as seeing other lifers, like Black-backed Woodpecker and Williamson’s Sapsucker. Other awesome birds in that area include Great Gray Owl and other pine forest owls.
Gorgeous capture! And what glorious skies and colors! Happy SWF! Hope you have a terrific weekend!
THAT’S a big sky! WoW!
Happy SWF! Enjoy your weekend!
Duncan: If you come all the way over here, go to Wales, and don’t at least email me I’ll – er, wave a fist at your plane as you fly home! 🙂
Nice shot, Mr Finger, nice shot!
Beautiful expanse of sky.
Wonderful colours in your sky. A great diversity of layers.
Wow, the sky has a little bit of everything.
My Skywatch is here.
That’s really spectacular – it looks like a painting!
Beautiful Sky Watch post…beauty all around
I do my birding in my back yard … kites wheel in the sky, occasionally a crane flies over the pool, or a “V” of Canadians glide along, so close they’re like flung jewels … and then there are the family of cardinals that flit in and out of the pines and sit on the fence, all aglow. Happy Friday and happy skywatching!
The colors in the sky are so nice. Nature comes up with beautiful skies.

Awesome sky photo.
@Idaho birder- good luck with the PIWO, lots of other great species there too! Must be beautiful country.
I think I will be stuck in the house but if Im lucky I will make it to Quebrada Gonzalez- my favorite rain forest in Costa Rica.
