Well, folks. Since I know once March/April arrives I have no chance being in the lead in this contest, I made it a point to jump into the lead immediately, only to have freakin SEFI steal it away today. I will be out owling tonight to attempt to gain 2-3 more species and steal it back. EASO would be yard lifer material too.
Just added PIWO flyby today which was yearbird 23.
Expect a full post on 2012 blog membership and changes within 1 week's time. Details are almost finalized, and much change is in order...
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.
