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.

After a week of rain and wind, I finally picked up a few spring newbies. Northern Rough-winged Swallow (#44), Hairy Woodpecker (#45), Cassin's Finch (#46), and Bank Swallow (#47). Barn swallows are now everywhere, heard Lincoln Sparrow singing from the brush near the neighbor's feeder, several flocks of White-faced Ibis flying along the Colorado River, and still tons of White-crowned Sparrows lingering. I bet they'll be gone within the week. It's officially spring here at 4500 ft., green leaves and everything, even had to mow the lawn. If I could just get a Franklin's Gull flyover or a Vermillion Flycatcher overshoot, that'd be the ticket...
