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.

New Rule: talk on the phone when birding The Wastelands

Because when you do, good things happen. Like this afternoon when 8 American White Pelicans (#45/#52) drifted north...and while chatting with Fitzgerald of all people. This a year yard bird, a yard lifer, and a new Will County bird for me. Awesome!


  1. Booner- congrats! and good to 'meet' you on the phone the phone the other day. You know, AWPE is a bird I have considered a possibility for even my yard, albeit a remote one. But flocks of several to 20+ are annual each spring in MI now, so who knows. But even for you to actually nail it in your yard is impressive!

  2. You're welcome Boone! Anything I can do to help you out. Hellofa yardbird!
