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.

by a nose

Howdy yard birders, been a while......

I, like most have been wandering the earth enjoying doing field work and spring migration- still going on in the UP, I had Marbled Godwits, Wilson's Warblers & White-crowned Sparrows yesterday (not in the yard.....).

However I did take a rare trip home today, and as I caught up with a friend drinking beer and not driving for a change- we were treated to yard bird 88, and a brand-new all time yard lifer- a Yellow-bellied Flycatcher. Did I mention they are littered along the Lake Superior shoreline the last few days?

So this will be my last post for a while, I head out for the next couple of weeks to my tempory new digs in a black spruce bog in northern Luce County. Funny, I wonder if YB Fly will be my first yard bird for my new place......

I will be keeping a yard list and I will post it seperately to our totals in the sidebar. Dave- you should do the same from your spring field work- that was a hell of a list.

Finally, totally with you all- migration at the Haascienda blew this year; still missing RB Hummingbird and an f-ing Ovenbird! Still have sapsuckers around thou.....
