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.

Watch yoself Fitzy

Just had one of my best ever yardbirds- a singing flyby COLO (70/127) (whinnied about 15-20 times in a row, first distant, then real close but always hidden by the canopy). This after RCKI and YRWA finally showed up, 68 and 69 respectively.


  1. Nice score but whinny is for horses bro, in-flight tremelo for loons.

  2. Should have known I'd get a snide response from jealous kitty, whose 'pride and joy' study species decided to cooperate first at inland, oak-dominated Putzville rather than at the shores of Lake Michigan at the Lair. Hey, I'd feel that way too!
