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!

  1. Caleb - I can't believe that you'd go so far as to patronize with the enemy in hopes that you could pad your list! Well, then again, I guess I can believe it coming from you! But if you want to see any birds, Sean, you should stop by MY yard, not Caleb's!
