I added several birds over the last few days here. Best one being a new life yard bird - 2 Wild Turkeys (34/114) scurrying along the boarder of the woodlot. I thought it would eventually happen here, but those turkeys had to cross some major roads to get to this island of habitat! I'm a good 1.5 miles from any decent habitat corridors.
Other notables include:
Eastern Phoebe (32) - 4/11 (woke me up signing up a storm just outside my window. 4/12 also.
Ruby-crowned Kinglet (33) - 4/12 (but no Golden-crowned yet...what gives?!)
DAZL, you'll just have to work a little harder to catch me now... Haas, I'm still on your tail! And could it be possible that I could catch Joe, even if just for a short while?
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.
