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.

Well, what was a mind-blowing peak experience last December repeated as a "ho-hum that's nice" moment this week when a flock of Bohemian Waxwings stopped by the yard to say hello. They are starting to pirate the depleted fruit stock in town, raiding crabapple trees in the most urban sections of Escanaba. It won't be long before they have to head south for fruitier pastures. Hopefully that will give the rest of you the chance to add this little gem to your yardlists. There sure is a applecart full of them around this winter. Also a lot of Pine Grosbeaks too -- they have to be in the same boat as the waxwings.
