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.

# 25 The siskins have come home

After weeks of (possibly weasel-related) birdlessness at my feeders, things have been hopping the last few days. Pair of Cardinals, MODO, BLJA, both nuthatchs, 3 spps of mutiple individuals in woodpeckers, a flock of long-lost juncos, it's nice to have birds in the yard again after the slowdown.

My sizable House Finch flock brought in quite a few Goldies today, and with them- 3 Pine Siskins. It's been too long.....

So a taste of what my place looks like (besides an unwashed hobo's North Woods jungle abode).

First the view from my window of the feeding station

 And from the street

And here is the Chickadee that is excavating a cavity outside my office window.
