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.

Icelandic and Galactic Gulls

My goodness it was a great five minutes of gulling at the Haas Tract! So I'm staring at the feeders thinking "man! this is the day of days! Where did this flock of 9 juncos come from??" Sweet ya know? But the I notice a couple of gulls going over, and lo and behold there was a 1st cycle Glaucous in with a loose pod of Herrings. Yaah ya know?! However just imagine the surprise about 2 minutes later when a fricking 2nd cycle Iceland Gull goes floating over?! Too cool! It's funny cause the only Iceland Gull I had all fall long and into CBC week in MQT was a 2nd cycle bird. I presume this was it still hanging out. This my 4th or 5th Glaucous here (of course missing it last year!), but Iceland Gull, thats a new one for the Haascienda. Just goes to show the merit of another year of yard-bird-blogging.
By the way, the title of this post is what a dump worker in Dafter several years ago said they were having when I asked what gulls had been around!
