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.

Bringing the Cheddar

Well dudes, someone had to do it for this blog. As of next weekend, I'll be moving my family to the great state of Wisconsin. I can honestly say that I enjoyed making a concerted effort to waste time birding at a location with absolutely ZERO habitat. It was fun but it's simply time to move on.

The new yard comes replete with....TREES! So I'll be moving just in time to actually have a chance at wasting The Daz during the warby-war. Sky watching will not be nearly as good as it is here but you never know. If Slager can pull PEFA and NOHA out of his butt at The Slab, then I would say that I at least have a fighting chance to fork over my share of epic sky-nabs.


  1. where you moving to?

    and more importantly- are you going to get these fricking cheeseheads "birders" in line??!!

  2. no time to ease the new neighbors in on your strange hobby

  3. Hey Skye,
    Remember where Boone is fleeing from... IL where Ratateaille still roams free beneath feeding platforms for all birders to count. I'll take the oddball noobs who don't know a woodcock from a nighthawk in WI over the Gbros and company.

  4. Ratateaille..... Mmmmm-HA-HAH-HA-HA-HA-HA!!!!!!
    *wiping tears now

  5. moving to Rock County to be more specific....actually to a border town near where I grew up so that I can sit on my front lawn, face south, and broadcast two middle fingers in their general direction

  6. You know you come from a small town in IL when your hand has two middle fingers.

  7. Bwewwew's...I guess you could interpret it that way...

  8. Congrats on the trees, they will help a little.

    How close are you to the stateline? I hope you provide us with a few picks of the new digs when you get settled.
