Dave- wherever you are, send us an update! And if we need to tweak the rules a bit to get your current digs included in your yard list, let's do it. If you're in coastal WI you are sure to add some more species to help us cut down Fitzgerbil.
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.
