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.

#100 - Swamp Sparrow

Didn't spend too much time in the yard today, but picked up a pair of Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, a Black-and-white Warbler, and a singing Swamp Sparrow (#100) in the small marsh on the corner of the yard. NOWA and NOHA were the only other birds of note.


  1. Oh for the love of God can we please just shut this guy up already!?! It's one thing to get STOMPED after working tirelessly to take the lead only to miss by 1 species (knowing full well it was moot anyway), but to have to listen to this stuff sound like nails on a chalkboard!

  2. Oh then I suppose you don't want to hear about the Nashville Warbler, Great Crested Flycatcher, and the pair of Blue-winged Teal that flew over which kicked me up to 103 today!?
