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.

Hooray for Hoary

Admittedly not as pretty as J.D.'s version but this little beast is a welcomed addition (#167) to the yard and #40 on the year. For the skeptics; the main ID points besides the pale plumage were larger body size than CORE in direct comparison (esp. the nice thick nape and head) and a stubby upper mandible that was not a result of a window collision.

Cleaned out the garage yesterday and added a hat-trick of new birds for the year -- black duck, ring-billed gull, and pileated woodpecker.
