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.

Aythya plus some photos

Nabbed another new species this evening in the form of a lone drake Ring-necked Duck (#42, and #78 life) on the pond that quickly flew back into a more secluded corner behind the beaver lodge. I thought the bulk of the waterfowl had already moved through, so it was a nice surprise. The coot was still there this aft, I'll try to snag a photo of it tomorrow. Here are a couple recent pictorial highlights.


  1. "bulk of the waterfowl had moved through"

    Funny Fitz, I'm still waiting for them to show up in MQT!

  2. Yeah they're somewhere between us. There are absolutely no migrant geese left, and I have to spend all day hitting spots to fill out a checklist of the common dabs and divers at productive marshes and lakes around here. You'll have them as soon as we get a nice south breeze that makes it up your way a few days in a row.
