The last weekend of winter (or summer, depending on your polar orientation) rarely resembles either the season ending or the one about to commence. Rather, you might expect some chimeric display of all the weather patterns of three months past and future. Whatever this weekend holds for you, remember that birds in some parts of the world are already on the move!

I’m jam-packed with work all weekend, so I’ll try to snag a good weekend bird on Friday. More likely, the Lapland Longspurs I tracked down midweek–my first in a very long time–will have to tide me over for a while. Corey never shirks his commitment to weekend birding, so expect him anywhere worthwhile 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!
