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.

Sparrows and Such.

So I only had a couple hours to spend in the rainy drizzle/brief almost sun today and I came up with a decent bird count considering. So many Fox Sparrows! very nice I'd have to say there was at least 10 maybe more, one of the more common birds out back today. Also had good looks at FISP (one even showed at the feeder) and my first of the year yard CHSP also digiscoped at the feeder today after my walk. Still missed a few target sp. but it was fun to see a pair of EAPH down by the creek bobbin' their tails and catching bugs. Again with the few hundred AMRO and Wood Duck pair. Also had a pair o' MALL down on the creek. 44 Species in 2 hours aint bad.


  1. I see, buttering me up for a smack-down, cruel. Still, enjoyed my 15 minutes with the Big Day crown.

  2. Man, Warner, you are just about 2 weeks ahead of my schedule here. I can't wait until summer when we finally "catch up" with you, then pull ahead of you as fall migration hits us first. Did have EAPH upon arriving home mid afternoon after kayaking all morning with Brick Rigger.
