Rick - sorry bud, but I beat you by at least few mintues on the Mourning Warbler (89) this a.m (my 9:45 vs your 10am). It was singing off and on and I caught only a brief view.
I also added Bay-breasted (87) and Black-throated Blue (88) this a.m.
That's 24 warblers for the year so far...all I need is Blackpoll and Canada and I'll match my all-time list.
Other Warblers today included TEWA, MAGW, GWWA (again!), BAWW, CSWA and AMRE.
I'll be gone warbling elsewhere this weekend (S. Manitou Island with my Dad) so you all will have the next 3 days to make up for lost ground! Good luck!
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.
