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.

Wood Ducks return
I spent an hour out on the greens hoping that something cool would flyover (I had meadowlark on the mind). While the 95% of the flyover birds were AMRO, RWBL, and COGR, I did pick up 3 Wood Ducks (a pair and then a lone male) checking out the ponds (#32). And Song Sparrow became ubiquitous overnight with at least 6 present within earshot (#31). A decent Herring Gull movement (22 in an hour) going over east to west from Lake Michigan presumably. Now out to some area lakes where I will actually get some waterfowl diversity!
