Believe it or not, friends, we are closer to spring than we are to fall. The next avian migration we experience north of the Equator will carry passerines in bright breeding plumage full of song and vinegar, bursting to beget the next generation of birds. Until then, look at waterfowl, hawks, and gulls! What will you be doing this weekend and will you be birding? Share your plans in the comments below.
I’m sorry to say that I still haven’t been able to dig a path to my bird feeder. “Maybe this is the weekend,” reply a flock of House Sparrows! Corey may succumb to the usual Queens birding circuit or make good on some plans with much greater potential.
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!
Blue skies over an outer borough
(Learn about the Snow Bunting that almost killed Corey)
I will be birding in Centre County, PA for the weekend and possibly making the 50 minute trek to see a Harlequin Duck in Huntingdon County!
I’m ‘birding’ at home, but the storms keep the birds away 🙂
Hope you get to see the buntings.
Happy Skywatch Friday and Happy Bird Watching. Fantastic skies at your side.
If all goes well, I may be birding in Central Maine! I still can’t get to one set of feeders but thankfully I set the other pole outside my kitchen window. From here I can just slide the window open and pull the feeders inside to fill them! However, the deep snow has made it possible for the squirrels to get past the baffle and leap right onto the feeders! Thus the squirrels and the snow are driving me squirrelly! Have a great weekend!
Heading to Ecuador to meet Renato and go birding for the week!
Well I will be checking out the Eagles and other raptors and the snow Geese and Trumpeter Swan that winter over in the valley here. Good birding. MB
