Just had one of my more exciting new yearbirds- a cracking adult Red-shoulder go overhead about 150 feet high. There continues to be a huge northward push of robins, grackles, and blakcbirds, with smaller numbers of crows and Horned Larks intermixed. Also had a flock of 4 MALL migrate over, and earlier today a pair of dabblers which may well have been Black Ducks, but the fog prevented me from getting a good enough look to count them.
Hey Kitty- how does it feel to keep trying to catch me only to have the lead stolen away again time after time?
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.
