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.

KILL COGR & more

No, I'm not saying kill grackles (although they can be a pain when it comes to bird feeders). On my way to the car I heard a Killdeer pass over (21) and this afternoon back at the house had a single COGR (22) fly over. Last night I went outside attempting to call Screech Owls (to no avail for probably the 10th time), but did hear a decent movement of migrants overhead (I know what you're thinking, Caleb, so you don't have to say it Mr. Sonogram nerd). Presumably they were Tree Sparrows and Juncos because my yard was ALIVE with TONS of Juncos today and one Tree Sparrow in the bushes. Juncos had been very sparse all winter here (4 at most at a time and only occassionally). I can sense that I'm on the precipice of a LOT more VERY soon - enjoy "not being in last" as long as it lasts Aaron!


  1. ya know Curtis, Kill Grackles would make a great emo-punk band name!

  2. I second Owl Ranch's comment. And Curtis, I'm enjoying every second of not being last. These next several weeks will certainly be interesting.
