Times are too busy around here for my usual soliloquy (lucky you!) so I’ll cut to the chase: Where are you birding this weekend and will you be birding? Share your plans in the comments below.
What’s my deal? For 13 years now, an ever-expanding group of friends and family have looked forward to the third weekend in July for spectacular rural revelry culminating in our inimitable brand of poultry-themed pyrotechnics. Yes, friends, I’m packing provisions for the Chicken Inferno! You’ll find me watching whatever brave birds in Potter County, PA dare join the party. Corey, on the other hand, will not be at the Chicken Inferno and thus lacks purpose and direction for the coming weekend.
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!
A warm sun shines on last year’s guest of honor. Come back next week for our latest masterpiece!
Can’t wait to hear more about this “birding” festival!
I’m going to be helping feed a bunch of Fairy Prions washed up on shore this week tomorrow.
Looks kinda like the Chicken Cannon they used to have on one of the news satire programs…
Sounds like a fun festival, last year’s guest of honor was a cute one. Happy skywatching!
Hi Mike! I will be birding in or around Andover, MA as far as I know but if something wonderful comes up, I will let you know! Have fun! I saw 20 species of birds at the bog this morning when I counted at my eBird Site Survey! I saw a common yellow-throat. Previously I had only heard one here once so this was a big deal for me. I got a new bird for my Maine Life list last weekend when I saw a blue-headed vireo in my in-law’s back yard!
I’ll be at Hawk Mountain Sanctuary, participating in the Kittatinny Roundtable, where a group of hawkwatching site leaders from PA and NJ will gather to smooze and discuss last fall’s raptor migration results. I’ll be birding whenever we are allowed outside for breaks so see whatever is around in the field outside the center.
