It's truly getting to the thick of it now and the birds are really building up in numbers! I added 7 more to the year list today:
Least Flycatcher (64)
Yellow-throated Vireo (65)
Gray Catbird (66)
Magnolia Warbler (67)
Common Yellowthroat (68)
Cape May Warbler (69)
Warbling Vireo (70)
Sorry 'bout the rain up north, but it's really nice for a pile-up down here. I think I may be able to beat my 38 species count that I got today and increase my lead over "The Skye's the Limit" Haas.
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.
