Have you noticed the change in the air around you? Chances are, if you’re an engaged nature observer, you’ve realized that the mass migrations of May are over. In their place, we have resident birds hunkering down for a few months before the mad dash begins all over again. On the bright side, many locations are seeing dramatic improvement in the area of insects and invertebrates; I personally can’t wait for the summer crop of dragonflies and butterflies, not to mention strawberries! So where are you going this weekend and will you be birding? Please share your plans in the comments below.

I don’t know how much birding I’ll be doing this weekend but I probably will be picking strawberries. Corey will be bird-blitzing Ulster County, New York.  I believe Charlie will be jetsetting to Nairobi at some point so we might be blessed with some more shots of the Sharpe’s Longclaw.

Whatever your plans this weekend, make time to enjoy SkyWatch Friday

Keep your eyes to the skies. You might even see a Sky Lark, like Charlie recently did!
