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.

Welcome back CARW!

This a.m. I woke to my 21mo old screaming, but it did not drown out the cheery downslurred trills a Carolina Wren in my backyard! I've not had that bird here in well over a year and was glad to have it back. I hope it sticks, although I fear it's a wandering bird.
Then, to my delight, I looked at the google doc list for this year and realized my totals were off by a few. I scanned all that were ticked on my list and all were legit so my total on the blog page jumped few. Then, the CARW made me surpass Skye....WOOOHOOO! I have a feeling if I'm to stay there I'm going to have to keep on my toes as Skye has some holes to fill yet as fall migration starts.


  1. not so fast Duck-boy! I have just been lazy about keeping up my totals on the side bar. Also the google spreadsheet has not let me fill in numbers for quite some time- thoughts gentlemen?

  2. Signing into google docs usually resolves that issue...
    It makes you sign in separate from signing into the blog even though they are both google. After opening the doc, click "sign-in", put in user name/password and then it takes you back to the doc in edit mode.

  3. Curtis is right theowlranch AT gmail.com currently has admin privileges on this blog, so you probably aren't logged in. Guess it's hard to stay up on taknologee when you're a yooper. hehehe..
