Keep your eyes to the skies… you may see an accipiter or two!
The second weekend of May offers so much potential. With migratory madness, Mother’s Day brunches, and spring sports to contend with, most of us find many ways to enjoy. Have fun out there, but be sure to check 10,000 Birds frequently throughout the weekend. We have a special theme running that we’ll share tomorrow!
I expect to hit some of the more reliable migrant traps in the Rochester area this weekend in search of my life Mourning Warbler. Could this be my time? Corey may, weather permitting, commit to a little Big Day somewhere in NYC. I’m sure many of you will inadvertently do the same!
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!
I will be guiding around Cinchona, Poas, and Sarapiqui , Costa Rica on Sunday- these are three great, very birdy areas so it should be a fun day!
Northern New Jersey: Garret and the Meadowlands if the weather’s cooperative, the back yard if not.
A great sky-post!
Sandy Hook Century Run for NJ Audubon! Back to the Hook, and hoping for Piping Plovers, warblers, orioles, nighthawks, and, yes, some accipiters. I’ll have to have my Crossley ID Guide: Raptors, handy.
Great photo for SWF!Have a nice weekend!
