While outside enjoying the weather (and fixing the broken chain on my son's bike) my attention turned aside from my task to the high thin "seee" sounds coming from the top of the oaks next door. At least 5 Cedar Waxings (89) were flitting about. CEDW was one of my "where was that bird?" birds up to this point. Glad I could knock that one down!
The counting has been SLOW lately - and I assume it continues to be that way for the rest of you too seeing that the posts have slowed down to a trickle too. Maybe we ought to transition our posting during the summer to our local summer birding expeditions. Otherwise we might lose our readership (we had been averaging 40 new viewers and anywhere from 100 to 600 total views a day this spring!).
Give us some thoughts...
Oh, and when will I officially be crowned "Warbler War" victor? Has an ending date been set?
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.
