Had an interesting baypoll warbler come into the bath immediately after this Blackpoll Warbler got itself wet. Here is the Blackpoll:
Here is the mysetery bird. It immeidatley struck me as Bay-breasted, but after a while I began to second guess myself. Could it be the Blackpoll just wetted down? It seemed to lack streaks on the underparts, and have the blander, warmer face pattern of Bay-breasted, but perhaps to have whitish undertail coverts. So, what do you guys think? (Bay-breasted is a life yardbird still).
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.
