A bird I have had maybe three times in the county became yardbird 88/187 this morn. A young Black-crowned Night-Heron flew up from what I estimate to be a grown over pond on the old golf course. Viewed from the west boundary, the bird flew to the south west over the tree line.
Quite a lot of the usual's have entered the picture as the season has progressed and since I posted last, so I will not bore you all with what's expected. Here, however, are some of the recent highlights:
COLO x 3 - 15 April
VESP - 15 April
BOGU - 18 April
GRYE - 19 April
CATE - 25 April
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.
