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.

Fall Warbler Wars have begun

Consider the family of Nashville Warblers foraging in my yard this evening to be my opening volley across your'alls bow. The Haas Tract has always done well for fall warblers (possible in the spring too, but how would I know?!? I'm out birding interesting places then sitting around pretending my suburban lot is a realistic substitute for an actual birding hotspot!).

Prepare for a wicked fall gentlemen- I feel a very good autumnal migration coming to Lake Superior........



  1. Fall warblers in mid July. What a thought...

  2. ..an actual birding hotspot, like my yard?


  3. On another note- I am fairly sure I just heard an Uppie calling through my microphone overhead of the house. Unfortunately I ran outside but didn't hear it again- point is: get out there and look up, chumps.

  4. So what is the cutoff date for the fall warb war (where's Dykstra when you need him to set up a system geared towards allowing him the highest amount of points possible??)? I had a YWAR again on 7/22, is this countable for the warb war?

  5. Fritz - you're just jealous that I'm now 2-time spring Warbler War champ! However, it still must have been more embarrssing that I beat you last year - you and all your WI acreage.
    Bring on the fall warblers!
