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.

Snow Owl

Yep, at dusk over the Portage Marsh heading towards the airport, with my valentine of course.

First yard lifer for 2011.


  1. Killer yardbird man! Still waiting on that one for my county (if it wasn't a low year for them I'd have had it by now).

  2. so putty,

    whats your excuse for not getting them in on of the recent good years??

  3. What I want to know is whether that electronic valentine is a testament to the mad computer design skills of Swampy or if he actually found that insanity online...

    Killer yard bird, dude. I just got my MI lifer two weeks ago.

  4. That's such a killer bird, esp with the paucity of the them this winter...

  5. Google search on images: "Snow owl valentine" - first hit, cut and paste.

    It was so white that the first thing that ran through the walnut was egret, then I remembered Ground Hogs Day was only 2 weeks ago. Silly (putty) me.
