Finally nailed a CLSW for the yard today once the storm cleared for the first time in at least 4 days (!). Yard lifer, and one which completes the swallow sweep for me.
Now, off to Tawas for the Birding Festival this weekend, where the clearing weather surely will relegate me to missing the major wave which hits my house this weekend. Consider it a gift, Haas!
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.
