Just now (11:15PM) had a BBCU give its gurgle call quietly as it overflew the house (102)- the mic surely picked it up. Interestingly, the mic also picked one of these up 2 nights ago too after I had gone to bed. Also from last night, I found a recording of a few shorebirds flying over which included at least 1 LESA, and several unidentified sounds I assume refer to another shorebird sp. And just before coming in tonight I heard what sounded like a sandpiper of some sort give 3 single notes. Will have to work the recording to see what I can do with it.
Weird being this close to the top of the leaderboard!
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.
