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.

A Temporary Fix

Photographed are a couple of the highlights from the last two days. The RHWO came repeatedly for seeds this afternoon until dusk. The LISP actually showed up on Sat, but really got visible when I revamped the water feature which it can't seem to get enough of.

BGGN arrived on Sat as did WCSP & COYE. As anticipated, with the forecast south winds, yesterday delivered well with NAWA, WIWR, GCFL, LEFL, BANS, OVEN & CSWA. Besides woody at right today brought
a PIWO, OSPR & CARW. Hope this continues, 'cause I don't like going through withdrawals!


  1. It's always good when Rick's yardbirds are still YEAR birds for me, and I've been out trying a lot. Just curious- is there anything you don't get in this blasted yard, RIBR? What's next: Townsend's Warbler, Yellow-crowned Night-Heron, and Swainson's Warbler? Anybody going to be able to raise a candle to this guy this year?

  2. Silliness- this spring is progressing slow enough that almost anything could happen here. I'm thinking at least SUTA.

    Spazl- I'm pretty impressed with your movement up the list. You could be a serious contender at the finish if you keep up this level of energy and enthusiasm.
