If you are living on the same planet the rest of us are, you surely need a diversion this weekend. Why not make World Sparrow Day, which we celebrate on March 20, an all-weekend affair? The Old World Passer sparrows are ubiquitous all around the world, typically where humans congregate most. Your challenge is to see how many you can rack up while still maintaining a healthy social distance. Sound like fun?

Spring has officially sprung, so I and Corey will both try to pull ourselves away from the computers on which we live and work to see some new migrants. 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!
