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.

151 - WIWR and an October NOWA

A typical October morning at the wetlands... Goose numbers building by the day. Speckle-belly or rossii anyone?
Yesterday (10/7) I was surprised to see this guy bobbing along the logs while I was looking for snipe. This is my first every October Northern Waterthrush. It was still present this morning at 7:40AM.

  1. Sean - interestingly, today (10-10) I had a NOWA up here too - along the SE shorline of Reeds Lake. I wish I could get it in my yard - but I would think it extremely unlikley as the only water I've got is my bath. You make us "wetlandless" participants SICK!
