The second weekend of November is here and, provided you have recovered from celebrating or weeping over the elections in the United States, we here at 10,000 Birds assume you will be birding. Though the full fury of winter is nowhere near, here in the northern hemisphere things are starting to get a bit chilly. Some of our avian winter residents are here to be seen, whether by the beach or on the feeders, and you should be out there looking…so, what are you doing this weekend and does it involve watching birds? Leave your answer in the comments.
As for us Mike will be back from Texas and most likely spending hours working on updating his grossly swollen life and year lists. Charlie will be birding somewhere that pretty much everyone who reads this blog will be very jealous of (either that or he will be home relaxing [home relaxing, hopefully – Charlie]). Corey will be birding somewhere in New York City’s five boroughs and hoping for some west coast rarities to show.
No matter what you’re doing (even if you’re not birding) we hope you have a great weekend. Just make sure to stop over at Skywatch Friday to see what the rest of the world is up to…
Hopefully, you’ll see more than pigeons this weekend!
Wow! That’s a great pictures of birds…what camera do you use?
Lovely shots, enjoyed your blog:)
Up in Mexico’s Sierra Madre at Yecora, Sonora. This will actually be my first visit to that famous site, a change of destination occasioned by the damage wrought by Norbert to southern Sonora. I don’t imagine that there will be any ‘lifers’ for me, but my modest list for the state should grow by a couple.
Birdy weekends to all!
I must say that pigeon shot from below is outstanding in the sky, wonderfully done.
Good inflights! Well done!
The detail in that first shot is amazing…
Birding coastal Delaware..Bombay hook and south its great birding here…

Oh, I like this, both for the great photography and for the sense of humor.
That top photo is super duper. Almost the pigeon looks…. graceful, which they are in the air.
SATURDAY , WENT TO A BIRDING FESTIVAL IN LODI, THEN DROVE DOWN TO THE SANTA FE GRADE, AND CHECKED OUT THE WHITE FACED IBIS, SANDHILL CRANES,AND A SNIPE.
