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.

Bird Bath Bonanza...

Check out the Bonanza at the Bird Bath...

Putnam, I think I beat you by a long shot for "shear number of birds in the bath at one time"!

In addition to this "excitement" (if you want to call a flock of HOSP's exciting) I added the following birds over the last few days...

9/2 - #97 - Veery (some people actually get to SEE them in their yards) I also saw a Swainson's Thrush and had a bad look at what was likely a Gray-cheeked foraging by the Swainson's.

And to the Warbler War...(it's been slim pickn's here):
8/27 - Magnolia Warbler
9/3 - Ovenbird
Today I had only Red-eyed Vireo and a Wilson's Warbler for migrants...and they were like pulling teeth to find too. ARGH!
On a positive note, Ruby-throated Hummingbirds have finally become regular to my feeder! YEAH!


  1. Impressive Curtis! Nothing like a swarm of HOSP to warm up the backyard (and totally prevent any parulid from coming near it). That's a competition I want you to win!
