Best Bird of the Weekend (Second of October 2012)
Sports lovers enjoyed a veritable smorgasbord of superior athletic entertainment this weekend, at least in the United States. Then again, birding culture offered a surprising slate of events as well. From The Big Sit to Focus on Diversity II to the general madness of fall migration, the last few days had something for everyone.
I must not be getting out enough, because I was thrilled to find a flock of Yellow-rumped Warblers: usually butter-butts are distractions, not attractions. Corey’s Best Bird of the Weekend was a more interesting species of warbler, likely the last Northern Parula he’ll find in Queens this fall.
