Now that July 4th has passed, is it too soon to observe that summer will be over before we know it? I love summer and look forward to it all year, yet now that I’m in the thick of it, fall feels far too close. Better enjoy this blistering heat while it lasts! How will you enjoy your summer weekend and will you be birding? Please share your plans in the comments below.

Neither Charlie nor I have any formal birding planned for the weekend. Corey, on the other hand, will be doing a seawatch Saturday morning. Good man!

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!
