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 change of pace

The yard list here in ANJO-land remains stalled under 20 species; it took until today to see the year's first Tufted Titmouse, and narry a raptor has graced our skies or woods yet. But the snow-less doldrums are over; Cleveland is getting perhaps half a foot of snow in this snowstorm, and the birds have finally started using the feeders more heavily. What a difference 24 hours makes.


  1. Looking good Cleve-man. What are your prospects for CARW, PIWO, BDOW, HAWO, RSHA, NOMO, and other low density forest birds?

  2. That's a pretty classy side-by-side. It has been awhile since we had a nice time lapse.

  3. CARW - twice last year
    PIWO - never; previous owners saw one in ten years. Need suet feeders...
    BDOW - doubt it
    HAWO - already have it for 2012
    RSHA - had a juv in the woods a few times last fall
    NOMO - unlikely
