This morning produced one more to add to the year total. As I wandered my back lot I flushed a Song Sparrow (32) at two different points. Wasn't singing, but nice to see. I also had a couple Titmice (they came back after a one day appearance last week) and a Brown Creeper (maybe 2) that has been showing up almost daily.
By the way, welcome, Dave, to the "bird bash"...you are one more who's made it to the "WWCR Yardbird Club" (you may have even been first) - making our percentage of participants who are in the club up to 75% (we have one wannabe who holds the number down unfortunately). You can see previous posts about our sightings - I'm probably topped off at about 74 birds, Sean's at 71.
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.
