2013 and beyond

It's pretty simple: the most birds seen or heard from one's yard during 2013 will be the "winner". Want in? O.k....then do it despite that.

2013 promises to be a lot less mean but still a carbon-free birding competition, even if slightly less exciting than a MEGA x EPIC hybrid.

On the way in to town today I had 2 Ring-billed Gulls coursing over the house- only #25 for the year. After looking at Sean's newest birds and the fact that he's had Red-winged Blackbirds for weeks now, it confirms for me how different the phenology of migration is across the lake. We're at the same latitude, and yet I still do not have Red-winged Blackbird for the year! Man I cannot wait for some new birds...

[UPDATE]- After getting the call from Sean that all kinds of waterfowl and some raptors were moving over his house, I walked outside and was treated to 3 more year birds (and one yard bird!):

Common Grackle 
Bald Eagle (YARD BIRD #73)
American Robin

Bring it on!

  1. Oh and you're welcome for getting you that yard bird. I don't know what more I can do to help you aside from capturing white fronted geese and catapulting them past your window...
