August is here, which means that all too soon your local migratory birds will be gone, as will our long, lazy days of summer. Enjoy them — the birds and the days — while they last! What will you be doing this weekend and will you be birding? Share your plans in the comments below.

The men of 10,000 Birds are all remaining close to home this weekend. We hope you’ll be more adventurous! 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!
