Most people I know are obsessing over watching eclipses, to the extent that they’ll be traveling hundreds of miles for a fuller experience. My initial reaction was to scoff at those who presumably have nothing better to do than devote a full day to a brief, uncertain sighting of something special but ultimately frivolous. Then I remembered what my hobby is…

I haven’t rustled up any shorebirds around Rochester yet and aim to rectify that this weekend. Corey will most assuredly spot shorebirds and other attractions at Jamaica Bay NWR. 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!
