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.

The Evil has landed
In a rare show of goodwill, our long predestined winner (Sean) has decided to visit my yard in hopes of imparting some Wisoconsin magic on my yard list. Actually, he is just travelling through en route to northern Michigan (it's still kind of a goodwill gesture for him to just leave his yard for a weekend, eh?) and needing a place to crash. Let's hope a nice little movement occurs overnight, as it has been SLIM pickins the last few days with nothing but 2 Red-eyed Vireos singing nearby and a single Tennessee Warbler. I need a new push as I am still hoping to eek out Bay-breasted, Canada, Blue- and Golden-winged, Veery, and some easy stuff like Lincoln's Sparrow and Gray Catbird. All of these species are life yardbirds still!
