My, but August seems far away right now! Fall has fallen upon the Northern Hemisphere, while spring is springing in the Southern. This is a time of transformation and peregrination. Birds are on the move… are you? Fall is fully upon the Northern Hemisphere, which means that birds are well and truly on the move. How about you? How are you going to spend this weekend and will you be birding? Share your plans in the comments below.

Thanks to a rather improbable turn of events, I’ll be participating in a golf tournament this weekend, despite the fact that I don’t know how to play golf. The upside is that we’ll be at Eagle Vale, which has been named a Certified Audubon Sanctuary. On the other hand, the certifying organization, Audubon International has no affiliation with National Audubon or any local Audubon chapters, so the distinction may be a dubious one not auspicious for avian abundance. As for Corey and Charlie, they won’t be golfing and might not even be birding.

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!

Keep your eyes to the skies for the sun’s rise, like this dawn breaking over the mighty Hudson River
