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.

Tonight I was able to lure the Putmeister out of his lair to come and "dig a hole" in my yard for my new bath tub bird bath water feature and to eat some pizza. Can you believe he took the bait? You can tell what a grand time he had...just look below:

Little did Caleb know that the finished product was not intended for the birds...

...but for one DUMB DODO!! That 25 bird "all-time yard list" lead he's got on me is sure to fall now!! (eventually anyway). Skye and Sean, your welcome also because I have a hunch that the 136 all-time species Caleb has is set in stone (a GRAVEstone that is)...overtake him at your own leisure. HA HA HA HA!!! (insert evil laugh here).
Stay tuned for more "finished product" photos and (hopefully) some nice bird shots too.


  1. You guys are such nerds. I wish I could have made such a property enhancing feature this evening at my place... Can't wait to see what this bad boy starts pulling in at your little oasis there Curtis.

  2. I'll leave the nerd-dom to Dorkstra (hence the name). But I will tell you this: with Curtis's superb oasis-effect in action, in addition to having a loud-splashing water feature right at the base of the thicket, he is going to have some awesome stuff in there, if he is home to witness it...

    Send finished photos!
