Best Bird of the Weekend (First of December 2010)
Did your weekend deliver the highs and lows mine did? How quickly I went from the dizzying heights (watching the Giants bludgeon the Redskins from swanky club seats) to the harrowing depths (driving over seven hours back to Rochester through a blizzard!) Plus, I missed an amazing bird while in NYC. How about you? If the high points of your weekend included birding, share your best bird here.
I suppose my best birds were my first ABA Cave Swallows at a water treatment plant off Lake Ontario, but I actually found a large mixed flock of American and Fish Crows in Westchester more interesting… do they often flock up together? However, I was so busy with crow-watching and other activities while in the NYC metro area that I couldn’t join Corey in chasing New York State’s first Hermit Warbler.
Corey bests me in weekend birding yet again…
