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.

Red-throated Loon

yep, seen skye high yesterday while tracking a group of bonies in hopes of a "little" salvage. A flock of 40 shorebirds against the morning sun added to the excitement but not to the total.
Adding to the tease a pair of Wilson's Phalaropes, Dunlin, Pectorial Sandpiper, are 200 meters away blocked from view by the cattails. Do phalaropes display? They have nested here in the past.
I see the northern boys are on the wrong side of the front but hopefully if we tread water for a few more days we get to partake in the feast. I've seen springs though were the fronts effectively keep us cut off from the action though down here in Delta County a billion or two midges can't go unnoticed.

Snow expected this weekend -- dohp.

Good birdin'

Big Rig, you working that yard hard or what? Watch your RPMs.
