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.

So- what can I say...... I heard an Evening Grosbeak outside my window, took a peek out, and damn, there was a freaking Yellow-throated Warbler coming into the drip.
I've had a handful of great birds here at the Haascienda, but I think this might be the best one yet. It certainly is the rarest. I need to go digging through my records, but I believe this is the 8th UP record of Yellow-throated Warbler. I might also add, my 3rd for the UP, and 2nd in Marquette.
So I am requesting an additional 3 points to my fall warbler war total, my reasoning- come on! its a flipping YTWA and a hell of a Lake Superior vagrant. Whadda ya'll say???
Kaplan's got Audubon's Warblers, I get Sycamores.....
