Do you think flying flamingos look like flaming pencils? Jochen does!
May is in full stride now, which means migration is in full stride, which means most nature lovers are spending as much time outside as possible. Frankly, I’m amazed many of you even have time to read this. Is anybody out there?
Corey and I will be doing our respective things in our respective corners of New York 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!
Nice work, – happy SWF to you!
Fantastic photo for SWF!Thank you for sharing and have a nice weekend!
Me and some of the New York State Young Birder’s Club (NYSYBC) are going to Bashakill to see the warblers coming through.
Terrific capture! Happy sky watching.
Very struck by how strong their neck and leg muscles must be to keep them stretched like this.
I’ll be in the back woods of Maine this week!
We saw tons of cranes flocking in a tree, and more buzzards than I’ve ever seen before (do buzzards migrate?)
Migration is *finally* in full swing in the Midwest, but I’m missing it this weekend. For an altogether awesome birding trip—the Spring Wings Festival in Fallon, Nevada, courtesy of the lovely folks at the local visitors bureau. (I’m actually typing this in the Reno airport!) Expect a full report early next week!
Went birding at Edwin B. Forsythe NWR today and had a great time with Atlantic Audubon Society all day. The place is just chock-full of shorebirds right now! I’ll probably be heading back there tomorrow if the rain holds.
Great capture of flying flamingoes. Reminds one of Alice in Wonderland. They do look a little like croquet mallets.
