Blow, winds, and crack your cheeks! rage! blow! You cataracts and hurricanoes, spout… Depending on where you live in the world, winter birding can test the spine and mettle of any naturalist. If biting cold or unkind blizzards bar your path this weekend, venture forth. Maybe you’ll see a gull or something…

Work will keep me locked up while the rest of you frolic, but I’ll be keeping my eyes open for additions to my meager year list. Corey will be on a pelagic trip on Sunday, provided enough participants can go after it had to be rescheduled from Saturday because of the forecast. He’s hoping for alcids and fulmars and good gulls.

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!
