Rolling into the second weekend of February should remind us that even the most misanthropic birders can feel love for more than just the thrill of observing avifauna. Valentine’s Day may be, in many ways, merely a Hallmark holiday, but why miss an opportunity to celebrate the humans you love. Don’t worry… birds will always be there for you!

Corey and I will be managing time carefully in our respective corners of New York state to fit in both work and play. Birds will surely figure into the latter category. How about you? Where will you be this weekend and will you be birding? Share your plans in the comments below.

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!
