As hoped for, I had my year yard OCWA this morning (131/149). Its also a year county bird (235). Although a much more quiet day than yesterday, there were still some good birds around. OVEN, NAWA, MAWA, HETH, BRTH, YTVI & 2 YBSA to name a few. Unfortunately, House Sparrow showed up at my feeders today and even though I appreciate him as a first of season bird for the yard he will be bringing many unwelcome friends and family soon enough.
I'm getting impatient for Palm Warbler!
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.
