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.

A nice assortment of new birds came in today probably downed by the torrential rains throughout the day. When I got home from work tonight I was greeted by two long overdue male Purple Finch (75) at my feeders. A subsequent walk around the property turned up a distant singing Brown Thrasher (76) and a mewing Gray Catbird (77). Judging by whats being seen just to the south in Berrien Co. there's a lot more to come.


  1. awesome Rick-

    I've really been wanting you to pull into first place. It just seems so wholesome to have you come in as number 2 when I win this little seance

  2. Thanks for thinking so kindly, but dude, I'm likely to have twice your total in the next 24-48 hours.

  3. I'm happy for you Rick, really.

    Had 350 TRSW this evening - not new but exciting.

  4. Dave - sure, but I'm more inclined to put the goshawk there. Opinions?
