Weekends, particularly those sweet summer ones, possess a remarkable elasticity, stretching and spilling over its shoulder days and beyond. We savor three-day weekends, crave four-day ones, and treat vacations as interminably long stretches of Saturdays and Sundays. You may already be immersed in your weekend or just gearing up for one. Just try to ensure that birding makes the itinerary.

I’m working part of the weekend but home to finally spy some shorebirds, which I’ve been assiduously neglecting. Corey will be traveling to the sweet summerland of the Hudson Valley. 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!
