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.

Wakeup call for you slackers!!

All right slackers- Kat and I have decided to get this sleepy blog up and running, on the heels of the current crazy warm spell. First, the sidebar and spreadsheets have been totally revamped. The first step is to have everyone go into the spreadsheet and update all orange cells I have highlighted for you. The first several columns in tab 1 are your 2011 tallies. I also need the 3 new invites (J.D., David, and Andy, introductory posts for these inductees soon), to update their life yardbird lists- in the columns immediately right of the 2011 yardlist columns, also in tab 1. The warbler war for spring 2011 tab is also up and ready- Warner and David I assume you have YRWA already???

Second, does anyone know how to create a chart of 2011 year tallies which will have species on y axis and each person on the x axis, and could automatically update itself with the google spreadsheet? This would be sweet.

Finally, I am officially calling for a new photo of each of you for the updated banner. So far I have only received 2 photos- so get off your rears and SEND THEM TO ME! And get outside and find something new.

Your dutiful leader, Silly


  1. Hey Haastage- thanks for removing my orange color-coded highlighting from the spreadsheet, dork! OK everyone- just update the rainbow area with your year totals... And someone smack Haas for me.

  2. I added a sheet called "The Race" to track our individual performances. Just add numbers as you go along. Simple directions are on the sheet.
    If someone can figure out how to add it to the sidebar that would be nifty.
