Call me a copy cat...again, but these photos should pacify you, Caleb. It showed up this a.m. under my feeder with the Juncos.
This is #35 for the yard for the year (and I already had this one last fall for my all-time list, unlike my all-time yard list competitor who didn't get it till a few days ago - and thought it was a HOWR).
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.
