Best Bird of the Weekend (Second of May 2010)
May brings birds in a big way. Have you seen any good ones? One sure way to heighten the pleasure of a special bird sighting is to brag about it later. Step right up and share your best bird of the weekend.
I saw 22 different warbler species at the Biggest Week in American Birding this weekend but if I have to pick my favorite, then Cape May Warbler wins for the endlessly amazing looks offered. One doesn’t expect brown-cheeks to be so beautiful. Corey’s best bird of the weekend was a Ruby-throated Hummingbird, his first of the year, at the Forest Park waterhole. It narrowly beat out two Pectoral Sandpipers at Flushing Airport, a more rare bird in spring but, really, what is nicer than one’s first hummingbird of the year?
