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.

2010 UP and RUNNING

OK Dweebs. Just made my first entry into the spreadsheet and am up and running with 13 species for 2010. Best bird so far: Brown Creeper which came to the trees near the feeder with chickadees this afternoon (first in months, actually!). Big misses: Eastern Bluebird (seen in the subdivision this AM but not in my yard), Turkey (Dec 28), House Finch, House Sparrow.

If you're all OK with it I will invite Skye Haas to join us (Marquette, MI), who has an interesting yard with quite different diversity than us.



  1. I'm totally game for opening it up to Skye and/or Aaron. Just a fun way to share otherwise gee-whiz birds with like minds. Plus I hear that Skye knows how to identify GWFG on the wing which makes two of us for this blog... (!)

  2. Lets go for it! A dose of the UP and central/southern IL would get some spice in the mix. I just updated with 19 birds. Best birds so far, if you can consider them so, have been 9 ATSP and 3 RBNU. There is a chance for GBBG and GLGU this season with as many as have been on the lakeshore (3/4 mile away)lately.

  3. I'm rather partial to the dual meaning of our current title. The fact that its outdated, doesn't bother me. That's just my humble opinion though.
