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.

Burning fields = Bald Eagle
My dad and I burned two of our small brom grass fields this morning and I was a little disappointed with how little was flying over compared to yesterday. A few flocks of geese trickled over and I managed 4 more Greater White-fronted Geese (trash bird right!?) among less than 500 Canadas. The best bird of the am was a young (2nd year I think) Bald Eagle (#55) that came cruising right over the field and circled along the ridge at least 8 times giving my dad and sister great looks! Lots more cranes and killdeer and 2 more White-winged Crossbills (71 total) rounded out the morning. We'll see if there's any sort of dusk flight of waterfowl again today.
