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.

CHSP=#37 and last for the year

Well it was a fun run but it wasn't destined to last forever. The Wastelands are officially "färdiga" for the blog comp. We're officially moved into our new abode and we're loving the fact that we now actually have a yard. Pictures will come soon and highlights so far are WTSP and BCCH. (I hear that sniggering!) But seriously, these species are signs of good things to come. And one of your new neighbors has one of those epic feeder station set-ups complete with squirrel ropes-course. Looks like I'll be saving some mad coinage on sunflower seeds...

Our new place is a little over one mile from the Rock River. This afternoon while walking through downtown, a pair of AWPEs flew over...hopefully a sign of good things to come, since I'll likely not get the chance at the impressive flyover nabs I had at T.W.

The last bird of the year for T.W. was a Chipping Sparrow on Friday. I ended the yard list with a total of 74 species. This is something I didn't expect, especially considering that there was only one 20'+ tree visible from the slab.

  1. You'll have a blast birding at the new digs with this better habitat! And you have the awesome advantage of being in place for the best season. Looking forward to seeing you move on up the list!

    As well, I wouldn't mind somebody else supplying my feeders.
