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, scored a really great life bird today- Gunnison Sage-Grouse (not joking). Unfortunately, it was not a yard bird, duh. The back story: to my total amazement, I found this bird in the late afternoon in the first 2 minutes of my searching effort. For comparison, during my entire 4 years in Montana as a hard core state lister I saw Greater Sage-Grouse exactly ZERO times!! My state birds came on a early visit to Missoula to check out the school. In May 2007 Rick and I spent hours scouring the sage in NE Montana for this species and couldn't find it. So, needless to say I was amazed to luck into this thing that fast...

Get your warblers before I get back on 31 Aug, b/c I will be stacking them up again, boyz....
