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.

3000 words .....

......as in the worth of 3 iPhotos. The first; an emerging blackbird roost on the single tree in the marsh -- nothing new among the freshly arrived grackles and redwings but the potential feels good. The second; an anticipated bugle lapping around the marsh before touching down at precisely 747. The third; a large antique-white gull with a pink bill base, a surprise but a good surprise.


  1. The gull is killer as a yardbird. Can't wait to see the platform in mid April, although believe me if I see a good bird from there I am not drawing your attention to it...

  2. The pond is Lake Michigan/Little Bay de Noc - that's why the handyman went to work on the platform.

    Caleb- I wouldn't expect anything different. I'm just looking forward to the IBA photo opp. Good luck with that today.

  3. This is a very nice yardbird, def jealous on the ole GLGU!
