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.

After 2.5 weeks of solid dusk watching at The Wastelands, I finally landed my year's CONI tic (year #58). The initial detection came with about 0.18466283 seconds (which subsequently, at The Wastelands, is the same amount of horizon degree viewage that I have) worth of obs time of a fly-by individual just before it banked out of my sight line. After a few more minutes, I had two more nighthawks fly directly over me, and low. These birds are simply amazing...I would have to say my favorite species of the year so far.
