It looks like I'm still in last place though. But then I was going to console myself with the fact that I would be the only one on this blog with a EUCD tick. "Nope" to that one as well. Thanks to Bwewwew's Spawwow for effing up the fun...
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.

EUCD @ The Wastelands
Well, it finally happened...a Eurasian Collared-Dove (#16/#71) finally decided to enter restricted air space. For those of you who are not aware, The Wastelands is fairly close to Shorewood, IL, which has a sizable population of EUCDs in addition to the occasional AFCD. My doorstep is literally about 1km from a regular roost site. I thought for sure that I'd snag one last year but it never happened.
