Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge

How do you do it? How do you beat the birding doldrums, knowing that new species will arrive soon but are still tied up completing last season’s business? Share your best tips on making the most of the quiet times. And while you’re at it, of course, tell us where you’ll be this weekend and if you’ll be birding. Share your plans in the comments below.

If you’re wondering, I’ll be hanging around soaking up the intense heat that currently bakes the Great Lakes region. Maybe I’ll check out terns at the beach. Corey is checking all kinds of things out as he continues to take the American West by storm. He’s made it to the Pacific coast and has a lot of fancy birds to chase down.

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!
