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.

Well, one of the surprises of the spring was my inabilty to pick up several year birds I considered likely or even "gimme". Among these were Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, Wild Turkey, Rough-legged Hawk, Kestrel, Woodcock, and Brown Creeper, among others.

Well, another surprise was picking up one of these species TODAY- Brown Creeper (106). Must be a post-breeding dispersal from the nearby Rogue River corridor. Which makes me wonder if the Cerulean Warbler I found on territory 0.29 miles from my house in May has a chance of reaching my yard?
