August is almost gone, which means your local migratory birds will soon depart as well, assuming they’ve hung around this long! Enjoy another (hopefully awesome) August weekend. Speaking of weekends, what will you be doing this weekend and will you be birding? Share your plans in the comments below.

Corey and I will likely engage in only incidental birding. Charlie, on the other hand, will be at the very epicenter of the birding universe as he works the British Birdfair as part of the official Birdfair TV team. Wow!!!

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!
