Best Bird of the Weekend (Second of February 2010)
How was your weekend? Any good birds? Don’t be shy… tell us about your best bird!
My weekend mostly lacked for birds. Not only was my family visiting from the Bronx, but I was also laid low by a stomach bug and consequently slept much of the weekend away. Still, I was pleased to spy a Brown Creeper in a neighbor’s tree. Corey’s best was actually a flock of birds. While out with Daisy, he started to hear a familiar chip note, finally realizing he was hearing Red-winged Blackbirds, which then were suddenly in around in numbers singing “honk-a-ree” from the trees… first Spring migrants! Charlie was chuffed, as I think they say across the pond, to see his first ever Great Chalfield Collared Dove yesterday.
