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.

Sora - not on the radar!

When I got back late from work this evening I paused before heading in since it was dead-calm. A Bull Frog could be clearly heard from the wetland to my west and then as I was about to step inside a Sora called four times from not far away at all! I whistled a response which got me two more calls and I'm almost positive that it was along the stream or small cattail corner of the wet field. This is only the second time I've recorded this species here and my first that wasn't in spring (possible migrant back in the day). Unexpected, but I'll take it (#149). Especially since it's looking like I'll be moving out by mid-October!

  1. Now there's a bird no one else will be scoring! This is such a non-contest. Problem with you leaving only in mid-Oct is that you'll already have the vast majority of fall migrants you could hope for... Still, let's see what we can do to beat him, boys.

    Also, I'll try to post a followup to your summer yard tallies soon...
