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.

As Caleb mentioned earlier, I added some more species to my fallout list:
Golden-winged Warbler(78/94) - heard/seen
Blackpoll Warbler (79) - seen
Cape May Warbler - seen
Magnolia Warbler (80) - seen
N. Parula (81/95) - heard/seen
Palm Warbler (82)

The Palm makes it 17 warblers for the yard for the day (so far).
It's SMACK DOWN TIME!! Take that SEAN! Score: 31 (ME) - 23 (Sean) -17 (Caleb) -2 (Dave)

  1. Ah enjoy your glory Dykstra. My only meager additions in the yard this evening were a nice looking Blackburnian, a Lincoln's Sparrow, and a Least Fly. There were some warblers in the woods, but again dominated by Nashvilles with just a few singletons of YWAR, OCWA, TEWA tagging along... The Milwaukee lakefront failed to yield any megas, but the number of birds there was very impressive. At least 150 warblers of 13 species along a 1/4 mile of shoreline in a 1 hour walk. Came home hoping for the same here with no luck... Ah well, I'll nickel and dime my way back into the thick of it.
