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.

Warbler onslaught continues...

Incredibly, I seem to have held on to everything but yesterday's Black-throated Blue, plus I have added some more birds. The excitement level in my bloodstream is ridiculous. Here's the tally for today:

Cape May- definitely at least 4 individuals- up to 3 in bath at once!
Bay-breasted- 1, possibly 2
Blackpoll- 1
Chestnut-sided- 1
Nashville- 3-4 minimum
Tennessee- 6-8
Black-throated Green- 1
Redstart- 1
Black-and-White- 1

Now, how's about an Oporornis to join the activity, anybody? Also, how is it possible that Magnolia is still missing from my fall list?

My fav fall warbler plumage, hands down:

Can you see all 5 birds including the Cape May?Another view of 5 different warblers coming to the bath at once (starting to become a typical look!):
An uncommon pair!

Far less common than Cape May right now is this bugger (never thought I'd say that):


  1. Hey, would you quit hogging all of this blog?! Some of us might like to have more of a share! Sheeesh!

  2. Um, let me think about it..... NO! I am going to bask in this glory for as long as the birds will allow me to.

    A better solution might be for you to get into your backyard and find some birds worth posting!

    On another note- there are 2-3 GHOW singing outisde my house right now 1AM. Tried tapes for Screech and barred to no avail... And literally no nocturnal passerine flight occurring so far. Perhaps not surprising giving the stalled frontal system...
