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.

On the morning survey of the yard I again missed YBSA but its still being seen south of me so there is still hope. A nice treat was a WIWR in full song, over and over. So awesome. Also sad was a lack of LOWAs. But did have a Yellow-throated Warbler singing repeatedly up stream, always a pleasure. Also two separate (or perhaps the same silly bird circling) American Pipit fly-overs. And the whole cast of others making a ruckus. A beautiful cold spring morning. Still hoarding the Fox Sparrows and Yellow-rumps, sorry to keep them so long guys. 73, and 74. But who's counting? ;-)


  1. You're not hoarding the FOSP any more as there have been multiples here the last few days. However, you can unleash some of those YRWA for us northerners. Several YBSA of late, as well.

  2. check this crazy shiz-nitty out! A local birder up here had 2 Palm Warblers today! Not even by a Great Lake, but way up high in the hill/boreal country (ie, were spring comes last!)
