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.

the last & the first

So considering the fact that it's snowing sidewise in MQT right now, I didn't think I was gonna get any new yard birds today. But a brave little Song Sparrow is singing away back in the aspen grove- kudus to you little guy!
Incongruously, a Pine Grosbeak warbled its way over the house- headed north; it's certainly possible that I won't see that species again until late fall.


  1. A little sign of spring right! And heck, enjoy those PIGR as Kaplan is the only other person who even has a prayer at that species on this blog...

  2. In the Keweenaw I would agree I'd have a fighting chance but I'm living in Michconsin now so not sure if they manufacture Pine Grosbeaks here or not. Plenty of blackbirds though.

  3. Yah, JK lost some of his Yooper street creds by moving to Lake Michigan
