Where Are You Birding This Second Weekend of September 2012?
Do you love this time of year as much as I do? You may have to be a football-loving, bird-chasing father of schoolchildren to truly understand the attractions of early September in New York, but the season has something exciting for everyone. What do you love best about September?
I plan to explore rumors about the early, diminished local apple crop and expect to encounter countless American Goldfinches (even more than are flocking to my feeder) at the orchards. Corey will be scanning local flora for avifauna. How about you? Where will you be this weekend and will you be birding? Share your plans in the comments below.
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!
