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.

Doldrums no more?

I quickly added two more birds, not only for the year...but for the YARD!
Wandering in the back I saw a distant large bird flying high above - no, not BAEA, but I'll still take a Great Blue Heron (42, 85).
A little later I heard the distictive "eeeeww" squeezy toy call of a YBSA (43, 86). When I stopped and waited for it to show itself I was pleasantly suprised to see not only one, but a pair in the high branches above me - SWEET!
So, may my week in the doldrums be OVER.

  1. Nice Downy Woodpecker photoshopping, chief! BTW, you finally helped Dave and I by adding a bird to our cumulative tally! We have pulled within 8 of our arch-nemesis.

    I have one day of yard birding left (TODAY) until April 15, so I better get out there this afternoon!
