Here we are in the thick of autumn, a fallow period for many birders. Unless you’re close enough to the equator to still be experiencing serious bird movement, you’re confronted with the same old same old. Or not! As one set of species moves out, another comes in. Take a moment, catch your breath, and get back out there to see who’s new in the neighborhood! What are you doing this weekend and will you be watching birds? Comment below on the excitement you have planned!

I’m still unpacking my phenomenal trip to the Rio Grande Valley and Charlie is doing the same for his recent Singapore sojourn. At least we can count on Corey to relentlessly patrol the New York Metro region for special sightings. Good man!

Whatever you plan to do this weekend, be sure to celebrate Sky Watch Friday

I daresay few of you have witnessed an Eastern Broad-billed Roller soaring over Singapore’s Central Catchment Reserve at dawn (check Charlie’s account for more photos of this and other birds)
