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.

"Shoulda, woulda, coulda"

That's what my wrestling coach warned against saying after a match -- he was one of these 110% leave-it-all-on-the-mat kinda guys. With that in mind I mistakenly left the yard briefly today to see what was on the other side of the cattails .....NSHO, REDH, HETH, AMWO, & WIWR -- all nice trophies but just out of reach...

However, top honors tonight in the Shoulda, Woulda, Coulda category goes to the Asio owl (short-eared) that gave me the evil eye as it flew between myself and the lair on the other side of the marsh. How's that for a near miss?

The only legit yardie for the day was Ring-necked Duck.

setting the alarm for o-dark thirty, need that woodcock....need that owl.

  1. Joe, that's a spectacular near miss! I can't say I've had one comparable (in the yard, at least). Good luck with it and the AMWO in the AM.
