Keep your eyes to the skies. Maybe you’ll see a Passenger Pigeon, but probably not…

September offers enough worthwhile diversions to make anybody’s head spin, but if you’re a bird watcher, you’re doubly driven to get out and about over the weekend. But might I suggest taking advantage of a quiet hour or two to catch up on every powerful post we’ve published during Extinction Week here at 10,000 Birds? Do yourself that favor… at the very least, you’ll better appreciate the living birds you do see this weekend!

I’ll be running around Rochester juggling an assortment of activities while keeping my eyes to the skies for migrants. Corey will be doing the same at an undisclosed location in Pennsylvania. 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!
