While those of us in the Northern Hemisphere are just getting used to the idea of summer, birds have been in tune with the season for a while. From a phenological perspective, we are mired in the middle of the current season, which typically means minimal avian diversity. Fret not, for nature reveals new surprises every week. See if you can uncover one this weekend!

I’m headed down towards NYC this weekend, but I won’t be joining Corey for birding. Summer birding isn’t enough of an attraction to risk that level of population density. Instead, I’ll be enjoying birds north of the city while Corey is stuck in Queens.

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!
