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.

Goliath falls

(if only for a week)

Well, folks, we have now determined scientifically that it takes about 3 weeks of Sean's absence at his yard for us to catch up to him, cumulatively. Not saying too much for us, but I am going to enjoy it anyway whie it lasts. We are officially in the lead today, with Curtis's addition of Blue-headed Vireo this morning, and my Warbling Vireo. White-throated Sparrows FINALLY made it to my yard today.

Also, I just received my new digiscoping camera, the nikon coolpix p5100, and these are the first results. It is an EXCELLENT camera for digiscoping- kind of like a mini DSLR, but technically just an advanced point and shoot. 


  1. Holy crap Caleb - that's a Gray Vireo!?! I presume that's a yard bird for you? Way to go guys, you have one more week of grace before the tables turn once again! Glad the Nikon is working well for you. Nice find on the ECDO Curtis!

  2. thanks, Sean. Check out ECDO photos at my blog...
