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.

Welcome to the Jungle

Hey beeya-iches,

That's right, what this little seance needed was moi!

I'm sure you all are drooling over my yard Solitaire, of which I had numerous times over 3 months, including a morning when it sat in a cedar and sang! But what I really want to point out is the Carolina Wren! That's right Carolina Wren. Quit yer snickering, that's like that Buckeye birder (yah, I'm talking to you!), getting a Bohemian Waxwing at his place, (of which I had 7 in the yard this morning.....)

Also why Put-out lists Clay-colored Sparrow as a highlight of my little yard, a regular spring and fall migrant, when obviously the 4 different Glaucous Gulls I've had are so much better, well that's just a sign of his provincial ignorance......

It's ON!!!!



  1. Heck, Skye's lucky he could even ID the wren (Curtis knows what I am talking about) given its southern "tropical" homeland and his permanent arctic residence (ie. 46 degrees latitude). Now we'll have to teach him how to ID such other mysterious southern species as Tufted Titmouse and Black-capped Chickadee (I am sure Boreal is the only regular species THAT far north!).

    And regarding CCSP, be sure to check your book. CHSP don't have rufous crowns in the fall, my man...

  3. And for those that don't know, TOR stands for "third order retard", a fitting moniker indeed. ;) Let the bloodbath begin!

  4. Save your bitching for the showers ladies- are we playing fer' real or what!?!?!

    And Slacker, the only way your WWCR cancels out my wren is if there had been a once in a life time wave of Carolina Wrens across the north, with wrens in Nunavut!

    ....as in I'm having none of it!

  5. Yeah I have to agree with Skye on the WWCR / CARW analogy... BOWA or maybe PIGR seem to be much more fitting.

  6. Shower?....pick-up the soap Haas-been.
