Is September more than half over already? That means that fall migration should be getting hot as the temperatures get cold, at least on the upper half of the world. How are you going to spend this weekend and will you be birding? Share your plans in the comments below.
I hope to take in some of the local avian action at Cobbs Hill or another convenient patch of woods. Corey is equally uncertain about his plans but should be somewhere in NYC on Saturday, wherever something good seems likely to show up. Charlie makes three, but he anticipates roaming the manor grounds is search of sweet avifauna.
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!
I’ll be exploring the birding of Dubai on Saturday and will be in Malaysia’s Fraser Hill on Sunday. I won’t be able to report my best birds for a week, as I’ll be at Fraser for a week!
That is a beautiful sky, such a lovely blue with the puffy white clouds.

That IS a beautiful sky! I wish I was birding with Duncan but I will be happy to guide some folks at Quebrada Gonzalez, Braulio Carrillo National Park, Costa Rica. Even if the birding is slow or it rains a lot, the primary rain forests at this site are always beautiful.
Hope to get down my the local refuge soon. It is generally a great spot to observe many species of our feathered friends.
Beautiful SkyWatch posting!
thank you for sharing this beautiful photo work
Happy SWF! Have a good weekend,

Seen on Sky Watch Friday, Season 4, Episode 10
Gorgeous skies over a delightful view of a line of trees and distant, inviting mountains! Lovely!
I’ll chime in: lovely shot, Mike!
I’m scheduled to go hawk-spotting in Mt. Kisco tomorrow, followed hopefully on Sunday by shorebirds along the Sound Shore. Followed hopefully by things flying up in the air that aren’t birds at Citi Field.
Hopefully the pectoral sandpipers and little stint will stay at Slimbridge until tomorrow when I’m off up to the Midlands, where there is a grey (red) phalarope at Upton Warren.
On the shores of the Great Salt Lake is where I’ll be! Also, we’ve had amazing warbler migration lately on Antelope Island. If anyone knows Utah, you will realize how special this time is for catching a glimpse at warblers.
I’ll be checking out the local cemetery and my own backyard for waves of migrants. The “locals” have been ecstatic about the fresh meal worms I’m handing out, so I’m hoping that the enthusiasm of the tufted titmice, downy woodpeckers, black capped chickadees and white breasted nuthatches will entice the migrants to drop in for a bite to eat and photo session.
