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.

Nice spring we're having

It's 55 degrees, and raptors are moving north over my house (not joking). I am in shorts and comfortable. So were these:

Turkey Vulture, Montcalm Co., MI, January 11, 2012

Red-shouldered Hawk (2nd calendar year), Montcalm Co., MI, January 11, 2012



  1. So nobody is impressed by a Jan 11 TUVU north of the tension zone?

  2. Not to be outdone; here's a newby I got in the yard right after everything froze up, hope you don't mind I just added it after your "yard" birds.

    Pretty good, but aint no RSHA or winter TV though.

  3. Tension zone, shmension zone. I give Kaplan far more credit for that arctic denizen he just BSed! Way to score photos of both ridic Jan yardbirds CAPU!

  4. Hmmm. That pic of a pink ice gull looks suspiciously similar to Willy D'Anna's shot of the Niagara bird which RAZL and I missed by just over 12 hrs. Any connection Swka?

  5. Oh, umm, my mistake, sorry. I must have confused the two. I try to get mine up there when I download the images from my parents computer.

  6. Hmmm http://www.narba.org/(S(0hurrzusdj5ham45oejcocuw))/default.aspx/act/newsletter.aspx/category/field/MenuGroup/home/NewsLetterID/425/startrow/55.htm
