May is moving away from us and with it, masses of migrants headed to their summer or winter abodes. If you’re the type who enjoys variety in your bird blend, get out there soon. In no time at all, you’ll be left with your usual residents. How will you be spending the last weekend of May 2009 and will you be birding? Share your plans in the comments below!
As much as I’d like to be out in the midst of that migrant fallout that has thus far eluded me this year, I’ll be dedicating my weekend to celebrating Ivy’s 3rd birthday! Thus Corey (who probably didn’t even get my dear daughter a card) will have to bird for both of us; look for him anywhere in the NYC area. Charlie, wherever he is, will probably eschew avian pleasures in order to manage the onslaught of early entries for our Puerto Rico Birding Tour Giveaway. Have you sent yours in yet?
Whatever your plans this weekend, make time to enjoy SkyWatch Friday…
Corey has been regaling us with his adventures in Kazakhstan but let’s not forget his gorgeous views of Honduras…
Great shot Mike, this is fantastic.
Have a great weekend.

The sky AND the terrain are awesome! ~Maria
Driving up to Lake Placid to have my own “Week before the Paul Smiths Birding Festival” festival. Spent last weekend in Salt Lake City — though the birding (amazing birding) was up on Deseret Ranch — a mere 250,000acres of diverse territory. Longest day birding I’ve ever had — pick up at 5am drop off at 1am (AND couldn’t make the Flam. Owl SIT. sigh.)
Maybe a Gray Jay will appear this weekend
Awesome sky with Honduras as center attraction. What a sight to behold!
What a beautiful landscape near and far. Love the tree on the hill and sky as well.
Most of the migrants have passed us already and I haven’t had enough time to go out and watch them. There is never enough time really. I think that my next project will be to try and get some snaps of sand martins but it’s not a certain.
I find the mountains more fascinating than the sky, I wish I could get to see mountains like that some time.
Have a nice weekend! =)
Wonderful photo! Happy skywatch Friday!
I’m going to Doodletown for the first time. Then I’m biking back to the city, so I don’t know if I’ll survive to give a trip report or not.
