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.

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.


  1. Thats some nice action before you fell asleep. Haha, I think its funny you said you had some serious yard-birding during which you fell asleep. Nice.

  2. Big Rig I'm choking on your dust.....SLOW down or I'm calling the poo-leece

  3. Hey Kattail Kaplan, sorry I can't oblige. I got an unbreakable rhythm goin' on.

  4. Slag Heap, I fell asleep 'cause you kept me tearin' around after birds for three days straight.
