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.

There were at least 250 WTSP making a ruckus in the yard this morning before I left for work. Several white-crowned (#91) were singing covertly with them. The juncos have all but departed with the mass arrival of Zonotrichia. #92 was a voiciferous Red-headed Woodpecker calling form the neighbors yard to the east.

The dam should break this week as south winds start Thurs morn and rain is forecast for the weekend. Are ya'll ready? I sure am!!!


  1. I'm rev'n my engine and ready to go...right now I'm sick of idling or at least just "inching" along.

  2. amen ricky...im impressed wit your sparrow numbers. I'm still stuck with tree sparrows. Love um' but they are starting to feel like a house guest that has overstayed their welcome and I'm feeling like a brass-rail patron nursing a stale beer...."hey can you help a brother who's down on his luck?"

  3. Wow man. Crazy sparrow numbers- Lakeshore effect is in the hay-ouse. Well, I have at least 5 WTSP! That's significant for my yard. I did add BARS and BRTH yesterday.
