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...
State of the yard eh Dave. Not sure you want to see that list.
Great Crested Flycatcher
Great Blue Heron
Great Horned Owl
Recorded only 3 or less times:
Eastern Screech Owl
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.
