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.

  1. Nice work on the warblers Caleb. We seem to be getting different warblers in our yards though. I can't seem to get a BAWW or BTNW yet. And where are the AMRE's? Maybe tomorrow will bring better luck on those and more. Oh, and I'm still beating you in the Warbler War. I think you're putting up a bigger fight this year...and I know that Rick's going to be great competition too.
