Spring has sailed and soon summer will begin in earnest. Get your birding kicks while you can. Those of us in the Northern Hemisphere can look out for cute, fuzzy baby birds while folks south of the Equator should start laying in supplies for winter! What are you doing this weekend and will you be birding? Share your plans in the comments below.

Corey will, as usual, be kicking around the NYC Metro area, hoping to hitch a ride out east to look for good birds in Suffolk County, Long Island. Charlie will return to Great Chalfied after his triumphant tour of the Bavarian Alps. To the great envy of many of you, I’m on my way to one of the most legendary birding locations in all of Central America, the magnificent Canopy Tower in Panama. Wish me luck!

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!
