My goal this afternoon was to nab Sandhill Crane for TW...got 60+ of them (#25) flying over at around 2:30PM. There was a small detection of a RTHA movement and the first TUVUs (#26) of the year showed up. No other raptors but the next sign of a south wind should bring some interesting things my way.
Looks like I'm tied for 7th. Watch out DSlag and FitzG. You punks are going down!
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.
