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.

How to avoid Sean's losing interest
OK, I have a suggestion. Since there is no simple, fair, way to correct for Sean's birding advantage from his yard (short of deleting all the species he sees which we do not!), I am thinking it might make sense to allow us all to claim another spot or two as part of our "yard". Perhaps even places not that close to our houses, but ones which could add habitat diversity or better view of horizon, etc., which might equal the total acreage of Sean's yard and even the score? Wouldn't this help keep Sean interested in spending time in his yard, and be relatively fair?
