Here it is guys...
Year bird 95.
In actuality I never saw the Canada Warbler go "in" the water, but only flit in the branches just above it. Same with the actual "first" bird I saw at the bath, but could not photograph - a Wilson's Warbler. But it was wet and had obiviously been in it before I saw it.
I love water!
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.
