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.

Finally got a Tree Sparrow at the feeder (Spizella, not Passer, Harry), albeit only briefly, for my 2010 list today. It ain't easy being behind the Duck boy, and especially being behind Haas, so it felt good to move ahead of them losers. Now, if I can just get a CANG with all this thaw up... And Harry, are you really at 18 for 2010? If so, that's incredible, and enjoy your lead while it lasts!

  1. I will, Dave, I will...let me enjoy not being rock bottom for a few days! Remember that 'spring migration' will probably only secure me 4 species maximum...
    Spizella, hmm, American Tree Sparrow must be a candidate for vagrancy to the W.P. some day. Right now, of course, there HAS to be a Black-throated Thrush somewhere in Ireland, with all these thrushes, but it could be ANYWHERE, and will probably never get found.
