Today after getting home from birding Woodtick Peninsula with Caleb I immediately went into the yard. Things were not going well when finally I got onto some thrushes...(sorry about the photos....but at least I got 'em).
Swainson's Thrush (already seen last week - I was too busy last week to post). Bottom 2 photos

Of course, there were Robins too and I thought I caught a glimpse of a Hermit Thrush too...but not well enough. A better look at the Hermit and a adding a Gray-cheeked would have been SWEET! Bicknell's would have been...well...stretching things a bit.
Look out, Caleb, I'm on your heels. Don't get too comfortable in the lead!
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.
