Just checking in with my meager additions to the yard list this year.
3/6 - Robin (23)
3/7 - Tufted Titmouse (where have they been!) (24)
3/7 - Ring-billed Gull (25)
Sean, is there a "mercy rule"?...you're making me sick! Or maybe a living in the "city limit" handicap?!
No CAGO, COGR or RWBB yet. But it was nice to hear the Titmouse finally here! And the Juncos are tuning up too. My chances for PISI and CORE are waning....
BUT - I will dare to say that at least one of my 25 is NOT on either of your lists yet....CARW.
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.
