Wednesday night, there was a huge push of Swainson's Thrush over The Wastelands. That was #59 for the year (#61 for all time). This morning, a decent swallow push finally brought Cliff over the property for the magical #60 (#62 for all time). Whoohoo!
A distant warbler 'spuh' at least gets me entered into this Fall Warbler War business.
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.
