This A.M. I woke to the delightful "peet-SAH" call of an Acadian Flycatcher..."delivering" yard bird 105 and year bird 101. The premonition I had of the bird singing in my yard the previous evening helped for sure! ;)
Look out Caleb...I'm down, but NOT OUT!
Any day I should add Common Nighthawk (still a yard bird but I wasn't around last late spring and summer)...and maybe one of the other flycatchers...
And a hearty "welcome back" to Dave! Can't blame you for not birding your OH yard when the getting was so good in WI.
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.
