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.

According to my Mom, Eastern Screech Owl and Yellow-billed Cuckoo were in the yard this weekend. Of course I wasn't in town being that I was up in the Traverse City area doing my BBS routes. Finally, after several days of searching, the YBCU (139) revealed itself audibly to me while I lay in bed at 7am. It called continuously for an hour thereafter. Attempts to get the EASO to repond to recordings have been futile. However, mid-afternoon yesterday while I'm at work Mom has it respond to the wailing of the siren from a cop car!
