Settling into the season yet? I find myself in that sweet spot of summer with many weeks of gorgeous weather and festivities arrayed out before me, fat times to tide us over for the coming winter (in Rochester, as in Game of Thrones, winter is always coming!) Too bad the birding is so thin. Where will you be this weekend and will you be birding? Share your plans in the comments below.
Corey and I both plan to stay local and low key. Western New York might not boast a phenomenal diversity of resident breeders, but we have lots of fun species summering here. I hope to run into some!
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!
If the summer heat is starting to get to you, consider a vacation in Ijjujuarjuk!
Sounds like a wonderful place. Happy sky watching!

I sooo remember the heat in Western NY and am grateful to be without it over here in the UK. I find myself wondering why there are fewer birds up where you are.
Hope you have a few cool spells.
Yes, I do like the temps a bit cooler!
We were in high 90’s – 100 degrees in Texas last week!
It’s a bit cooler in New York State, but much more humid.
Still… enjoying the birds wherever I go!
*Happy Weekend to you*

Awesome, the blues and the shadow play is fantastic. In this part of the world (Malaysia), we have Raptor watch around March, when the migratory birds go home!
I am in NYC for the weekend and hope to make it down to Jamaica Bay or the Salt Marsh Nature Center. That’s about as far as one can make it on public transportation from Manhattan. Any other NYC birders with cars going out to the beaches? I’d love to be able to get out to see some Piping Plovers/Least Terns/Petrels or Shearwaters.
Beautiful shot, sounds like either Lapland or Inuit country.
Not ready for snow, but this is really a very beautiful image. Wonderful work.
A what a glorious panorama! Great photo!
wow! Sure does look pristine in white. Picturesque.
Yikes! I am not dressed for that weather!!!
Looks very refreshing right about now~
