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.

Mov'n on up with Woodcock
I'm slowly but surely adding a few here and there and finally made my way one step up the ladder. Sorry AABO, but I had to do it at some point - hope you enjoyed your lead over me while you had it. The obvious standout among my recent additions was a 4/1 American Woodcock - kicked up by myself and my sons as we explored in the woodlot. I lost it as it flew off over some neighboring houses and out of the woodlot. Nice score for me 3 years running. Now where are Golden-crowned Kinglet, E. Phoebe, Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, Chipping Sparrow and N. Flicker when you need them? These "gimmies" should take me another step higher. Look out Haas, you're next.
