Though it is January, often the coldest month for those of us in the northeastern United States, this weekend is forecast to be exceptionally mild.It will be much more cloudy than the sky in the photo above, taken at Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada. Not that such parochial concerns bother Mike, who will be gallivanting around Florida seeing all kinds of warm-weather birds. In the meantime, I’ll be stuck in cloudy Queens, hoping to incrementally increase my year list. 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!
