One weekend down for 2015 and only 51 to go. Hope your year is off to a ripping start! I hit Lake Ontario for winter birds this weekend and walked away with a trio of Red-throated Loons. Corey’s Best Bird of the Weekend was an adorable Northern Saw-whet Owl at an undisclosed location in Queens. Of course, Corey wasn’t actually the one to spot it. No, he just brought his family to the area he knew one was hiding and waited for Daisy to make the discovery.

Best Bird of the Weekend (Last of March 2015)

10,000 Birds

Nearly everywhere in the world, birds are on the wing, not just traveling to and from their daily haunts but returning to their ancestral circuit. Based on the the time of year, many people I know are also on the wing. So best of luck to any and all creatures striving towards a distant horizon right now. Old Man Winter still has my part of the world firmly under his hoary thumb. Instead of enjoying early migrants, I can appreciate the spring songs of my local winter birds.
