Summer can turn on a dime, don’t you think? One week you’re slaving away for the man (or woman) while the next finds you maxing and relaxing in the vacation habitat of your choice. If you’re lucky, your turn might still be coming up! Where are you watching birds this weekend? Comment below on the excitement you have planned!

The family and I are still enjoying Virginia Beach but pretty soon we’ll be headed back to parts north. Charlie is recovering from some California adventures and still has Hong Kong and Nigeria in his near future. Corey, I suspect, will be lighting candles and performing ritual dances in the hopes of luring more rare Siberian shorebirds to Jamaica Bay!

As you prepare for an outstanding August weekend, be sure to celebrate Sky Watch Friday
