I'm back in the country for the foreseeable future, and will join in all of the excitement of finding Song Sparrows and such with you losers shortly. But for now, I'm happy to distract you with highlights from my recent Costa Rica trip:
The feeders stood empty for most of the last six weeks, but after filling them last night there are already goldfinches aboard. Just a few more weeks left to get lucky and have redpolls visit the ANJO estate...
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.
