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.

An Unexpected Winter Finch #156/176
A quick evening tour of the property after work was suddenly punctuated by a cacophony of chuttering finches barreling through the air 30 feet overhead. Reddish bodies were evident on most, although fainter orange tones and streaking were present on others. All were adorned with contrasting black wings and striking white wing bars. They were about 20 in number. Their undulating presence was fleeting. Conifer stands to the southwest of here are likely their hosts tonight.
