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.

Green Heron - talk about overdue by a month!

Well I was out spraying canada thistle and multi-flora rose in the fields this aft and heard a squack of a Green Heron flying over the yard. I suspect that they used to nest in the woods adjacent to my house because they were roosting in those trees every night 4-5 yrs ago... That's why I can't believe it took me this long to finally get it for the yard this year...
