Caleb - your yard is not the only one where "spring is ON"!
White-thoated Sparrow (48) - singing and at feeder
Ruby-crowned Kinglet (49) - heard singing, seen later
E. Towhee (50) - heard/seen
Yellow-rumped Warbler (51) - heard "chip" and saw 2 (see photos) - so much for your "riparian" advantage Caleb!
Lots of YB Sapsuckers this a.m. (3-4 at once) and HETH's too (3+, see photo).
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.
