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.

BCNH - 128

Had a lone BCNH this afternoon while spending 30 minutes watching the wetland. Managed 26 species during that time. Also of note were the 11 Caspian Terns loafing in a fluddle in a soybean field .7 miles to the NW. AND an African Collared-Dove buzzed me about .5 mile north of my place... Still waiting on EUCD for DuPage Cty, figures I'd get the (locally) rarer and uncountable dove first... Curtis, I wasn't kidding about that fall warb tally, lets see it. Our northern compadres are already seeing those drab beauts trickling through!


  1. I'm amazed at how close you are with Dubner. He has scads of habitat...

    Come on Benny Boy! Get with the program!

  2. Pretty amazing bird and overall performance for your habitat, Fitzy. I am starting to think I may not be able to catch up, but let's see what happens once September is over- I am still missing some easy ones...

    BTW, BCNH is still a Kent Co bird for me!
