Another weekend lies ahead, one unencumbered by the holiday madness that pervades much of the late autumn months. If you could see out my window, you’d be admiring azure skies most uncommon in western New York this time of year. I aim to enjoy my weekend. How about you? How will you be spending this weekend and will you be birding? Share your plans in the comments section.
Birding has pretty much come to a halt around here. My excuse is that I’m paralyzed with anticipation waiting for Corey to return to regale us with his Ecuador adventure. How many hundreds of birds did he see? Is it possible that he’ll never return to the United States again, unwilling to abandon one of the most birdy and biodiverse countries on Earth? We’ll find out soon enough. Until he returns, we can continue to enjoy photos from my trip to Ecuador in January. Here are the mercurial skies over the paramo at Papallacta Pass, a truly breathtaking and unearthly environment…
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!
Acopian Center for the Environment in Armenia has just launched their Online Field Guide to Birds of Armenia. Full color photos, plates, and information on all the birds you can see in Armenia (346 Species).
Still trying to decide. November is always like this: every destination is good, and one of them is going to be great….
Nice to see images of Papallacata Pass- first place I ever went birding in Ecuador. I wont be there this weekend but should finally pick up a few lifers and expand my Costa Rican list after a long hiatus when I do a day pelagic tomorrow off the Central Pacific coast.
Joining the local Audubon Society for a morning of birding at Jamaica Bay, if anyone wants to meet up with us.
From there, I’m heading straight out to Pittsburgh … anyone know of must-see bird spots out there? If the rain prediction comes true, at least I’ll be able to check out the Aviary.
