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.

Warblers just won't stop

Every time I think the warblers have called it quits, they come back and surprise me. All morning all I had was 2 Tennessees, 1 Yellow rump, and 1 Cape May. But at about 2:45PM the deluge resumed. Witness:

I again had 8+ Tennesees visible at once, inc. 7 shoulder to shoulder in the bath! 2 of the Cape Mays looked very dull (here is 1 of 2 such birds:)
The tally for the day is so far:
Cape May- 4+
Yellow-rumped- 1
Tennessee- 10+
Nashville- 2+
Ovenbird- 1

The Brown Creeper was back again yesterday, and that's been about it the past few days. But as far as warblers go, this will be a fall to remember for a long time!

  1. Hey Put Put, post some more footage if you can. That's got to be mesmerizing to watch first hand! The bathing starts here in the evening and seems to culminate just before dusk. Not the multitudes you have though...
