I don’t know how the weather is treating you in your neck of the proverbial woods but it’s getting chilly around here. Warm nights turning cool is a signal that birds are on the move, so you might want to be too. Not only will the activity warm you up but you might find yourself in the midst of a massive wave of migrants. My advice to you is to keep your head up! Where are you going this weekend and will you watching birds? Comment below on the excitement you have planned!

Corey and I will be watching birds aplenty as we assemble the 10,000 Birds Butcher Birders to dominate participate in the Montezuma Muckrace. Corey assures me that a 24-hour marathon of avian observation is actually enjoyable, albeit exhausting. I’ll let you know on Monday! Wish us luck. Charlie may need a bit of luck as well as he’ll probably spend part of his weekend stitching together his recent South African adventures.

Even if you’re not scanning the skies for every possible bird species, be sure to celebrate Sky Watch Friday
