The weather here has been horrible this spring for birding, but went out in the wind, cold and rain anyway today and was able to pick up 4 year birds in 40minutes of birding:
Hermit Thrush - 2 (36)
Golden-crowned Kinglet - 2 (37)
Yellow-bellied Sapsucker - 1 (38)
Field Sparrow - 1 (39)
Still waiting on a few gimmee's yet too. Just gimmee some sun and southerly winds!
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.
