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.

Another nice combination

Had three Evening Grosbeaks in the yard yesterday. Here's a crummy shot of one of the two males, through my living room window:

E. Grosbeaks are around in the U.P., but not so common in Marquette, so always fun to have in the yard. Also, yesterday, I had two Yellow-rumped Warblers in the yard. Here's a shot of one of them:

Cool to have E. Grosbeaks and warblers in the yard on the same day. A good yard day all around, cause I also added a new bird to the yard list: Red-tailed Hawk. Before you laugh your ass off at my delay at adding such an "easy" species to my yard list, I should point out that we've only been in this house since last June (i.e., this is our first spring in this house), and Marquette is in a heavily wooded area, so not great for Red-tailed Hawks. Ya sniping bastards. . .
