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 yeah, I've been birding the yard, just not posting about it. Mostly I just haven't had much to post about, the yard is pretty much tapped out. But still, there have been a few to add, and I should have added them to the blog, just haven't had a lot of chances lately. News: I didn't ever get a danged OCWA, I guess there is still a slight chance. I did pick up a BTBW back in early october, but not much else. Still no stupid YBSA. In the morning of the third I had a good day. Got up for some watching and there was a few hawks on the soar. I got a great look at a lighter morph RLHA, yard lifer. I have a suspicion that this bad boy is the same bird that overwinters down the road from my house for the past few years. In fact, on Friday I had a great look at the bird down the road. We looked right at each other, the bird was right beside the road in a little tree. Very cool. Anyways, back on wednesday I also got a lifer PALO, but not in my yard, it was down in southern Ohio. Pretty cool. Other news: a pair of pretty PUFIs at my feeder yesterday. Last night I got home late and the GHOW were talking. Good times. So I'm still waiting on YBSA. Good birding clowns.
