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.
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.
