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.

A continuous drizzle today made for some great migrants. Late this afternoon in one corner of the yard with thick vegetation, but open enough to sit and observe, I had 6 new fall birds: 2 AMRE, 1 CSWA, 2 WIWA, 1 NAWA, 2 WAVI (yr yrd bird 119) & 1 LEFL. (This was better land birding than I had with Prestby at WPBO yesterday.) The feeding flock also consisted of multiples of resident birds like BAOR, TUTI, BCCH, NOCA & WBNU. Earlier several CANG flew by providing another addition to my fall list. A YTVI stopped by the backyard water feature on Monday while I was in the UP at Pictured Rocks. It hasn't shown up again, but at least Mom and some other visiting birders got to enjoy it.
