Now that September is mere weeks away, I feel like my summer is finally beginning. We’ve had at least three days in a row without rain and daytime temps sometimes touch 80 degrees. Of course, before we know it, we’ll wake up to frost! Make the most of every weekend regardless of the season, people. What will you be doing this weekend? Is birding part of the program? Share your plans in the comments below (and be sure to come back Monday to share your best bird of the weekend!)

I’m headed down to the NYC area for family time. Regrettably, birding will not be on my itinerary. This marks the second trip down there within a month where I’m denied visits to some of my favorite birding hotspots. Corey will try to see enough birds for both of us at Jamaica Bay (lucky sod!) and other auspicious locales.  Charlie is a man on the move; one can only wonder what marvels he’ll behold this weekend.

Whatever your plans this weekend, make time to enjoy SkyWatch Friday

Good times at Lake Skaneatles, NY
