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.

In search of Red-winged Blackbird (had singing Sun about 1/4 mile from home) this morning before work I found 3 Eastern Bluebird (27)singing from the western boundary and Sandhill Crane (28) flying over. The sandhill were too high to judge numbers, but their calls were heart-stopping! Even with the 6 inches of snow we got Mon spring is in the air.


  1. Man, hearing a SACR bugling will lift my spirits considerably... I can't wait!

  2. Seriously- BRING IT ON! This sounds so good.

  3. Ricky, you've come back into the comp. with a vengeance. I better watch my back.

  4. Well, you can relax a bit Benji. Seems I ticked PUFI and I know that's not a bird I've had in the yard this year. Guess I got excited when I logged HOFI. Ha. So, back to 27.

  5. You'll probably rack that one up eventually. I know I hope I can spot the one or two that seem to visit annually at some point.

  6. PUFI will show pretty soon. March is often a good time for them to come through here.
