Summer is full swing here in the Northern Hemisphere, which means a birder’s fancy turns to less predictable targets. Traditionally, we might start chasing butterflies or odes, but these days bring more colorful fare. Are you Pokébirding?

I’m still in Michigan enjoying the lake life, despite the prosaic (for a New Yorker) birding. Corey never gives up on avian observation, so look for him somewhere in the Empire State. 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!
