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.

AMKE, RSHA & third MERL
This evening I finally got some serious yardbirding in. As soon as I stepped into the east clearing an American Kestrel (55/161) sailed over. Deciding it might be worth looking skyward for raptors, I went to the south field where I laid down in the sun. I promptly had another Merlin fly north. A few minutes after that a Red-shouldered Hawk (56) soared through. I was really hoping for a measly TUVU, but instead I fell asleep.
