Just got the "Haastage taker"'s all-time yardlist updated, and have come to find out he is in 2nd place already! Even worse, he already has the following species on his YARD LIST:
-Townsend's Solitaire (GEEZ)
-Harris's Sparrow (still a STATE bird for me)
-Carolina Wren (great bird in UP, esp that far north)
-Greater White-fronted Goose
-All of Michigan's regular finches!
Time to get busy overcoming this gap...
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.
