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.

Yard year bird - HETH

Yeah I know, it took me a little longer than I should have to nab that bird for the year in the yard, but oh well. Also had a nice goose movement on the morning of Sept 30 that included ~215 CANG, 12 CACG, and 1 SNGO. The CACG, SNGO were in one flock with about ten CANGs. Nice to have a goose flock where the goodies outnumber the blahs...
I also watched a young Coop give chase to a flicker without apparent success in the morning. I came back to fill the feeders after walking around to find this under the feeder (warning the below photo is not for the faint of heart):
Yes that is a MODO heart sitting next to the wings... One less juvie being stupid in the backyard.
