The magical month of May draws to a close, leaving all good birds ensconced in their breeding territory and getting down to the business of making more good birds. We fortunate humans who live on the upper half of the planet can finally acknowledge the onset of the most sultry season of the year. Yes, after this weekend, summer will have unofficially arrived. Are you besotted with that summer feeling yet? If you don’t remember what that’s like, let Jonathan Richman remind you…

Corey and I will both be taking advantage of a long weekend to seek out birds still sharing their songs of spring. 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!


Keep your eyes to the skies for raptors on the move
