That's right dudes...read it and weep. A flyover Green Heron that I pulled out of NOWHERE yesterday afternoon coming home from a day out with the fam. That's #52 for the year.
No. 51 was a female HOSP foraging quietly in one of the ornamental pine saps near 'the slab'. That, my friends, was a tough bird to get.
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.
