Nature lovers who can’t find anything interesting to do in the middle of May just aren’t trying hard enough. So much is blooming, bursting, and breeding right now that you’ll suffer whiplash and sleep deprivation long before you have a chance to become bored. And if the weather this weekend doesn’t cooperate, you can stay in and enjoy the colossal centennial edition of I and the Bird #100. Basically, you can’t lose! So how will you be spending this weekend and will you be birding? Share your plans in the comments below!

I’m hoping to take a run at Black Terns at Montezuma NWR this Saturday, though a few hours outside just about anywhere will probably be productive. Corey will be making the long journey home from Kazakhstan… can’t wait to read those trip reports! Charlie wishes he could stay home to spend more time making Puerto Rico Month on the blog perfect but will probably be sent kicking and screaming to Phoenix, AZ or somewhere equally birdsexy. Poor guy!

Whatever your plans this weekend, make time to enjoy SkyWatch Friday
