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.

Tie, yes, lead NO!

Ok Caleb, I let you tie me...but now I take the lead BACK!
Gray Catbird (54)- seen
Brown Thrasher (55)- heard
House Wren (56)- seen (AKA Long-tailed Winter Wren)
SWAMP SPARROW (57, 89) - loosely hanging with WT Sparrows, but under thicker cover.

A possible Tennessee Warbler was heard 1-2 x's this a.m. as I woke up. I quickly got outside to hear it better, but it never sang again. DARN WIND (20mph, gusting to 30mph).

    Luckily for you, I gave up yesterday morning to float the Galien River near the Indiana line and had 13 species of warblers! There was a HUGE movement of migrants south of the storms last night, as evidence by NEXRAD over Indianapolis and other places. Here's hoping that some of those birds made it to us.
