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.

Figured with the strong west winds this morning something should be pushed inland from the big lake. Sure enough a couple female Northern Pintail (150) obliged mixed in with a flock of Mallard. A young peregrine liesurely flying south was 149 and an Am. Pipit before that provided 148. Fun again now with the Kat on my tail.


  1. Rick you rock...how many gimmies do you have left???

  2. I'll show you mine if you show me yours.....

    Actually, I've highlighted my few potential gimmies on the Bird Totals page just like we did last year. I'm sure I'll end up with more that those seven possibilities. I believe we can surpass the totals of last year. We are certainly within striking range. You ended with 164 and I with 161.

    Now, I showed you mine.....
