Boone, Hussey and Haas - I'm on your heels...
3/12/10 - Red-winged Blackbird (#23)
3/16/10 - Brown-headed Cowbird (#24)
3/16/10 - Red-tailed Hawk (#25)
Oh, by the way, I'm vacationing at home this week and plan to make the most of it. So WATCH OUT! And Haas...SHUT UP about making up ground later and show something now would ya! Looks like your other UP counterpart is doing just fine so don't excuse yourself due to latitude.
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.
