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.

I opened the window this morn to listen to the bird song while making breakfast......Well, lets just say I didn't eat breakfast. A Connecticut Warbler was in full song on the east side of the house. It was never viewed even after an exhaustive search, although I was not 15 feet from it while it sang in a dense thicket of grape vine and raspberry. The other new birds today was an EAWP. Otherwise 12 warblers before work this morn.


  1. I'm up to 14 warbler species for the day so far (around 40 for overall species count)...so I've got you on species number but not on rarity level. Nice work on the CT Warbler... My best is Golden-winged Warbler. Other new warbs include Chestnut-sided and Wilson's.

  2. BASTARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
