Three weekends into a new year should see everyone still taking their resolutions seriously. Whatever birding momentum you picked up from a fresh year list should still be strong, driving you to seek out new ticks for 2018. If your enthusiasm is flagging, pick it up… we’ve got a long year ahead with a lot to see 🙂

Without intending to, I’ve been birding assiduously this month, hitting both reliable haunts and new hotspots. I have no intention of letting up either, so look for me wherever holes in my year list might be filled… it’s not like we have a ton of winter options in Rochester. Corey has a lot more to work with in Queens and feels no less motivated to see what’s around; expect him anywhere in the NYC area. 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!
