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.

You guys aren't the only ones in on the CORE party

44 just arrived, and it is an important pickup for me, no doubt. I have to say I wasn't sure they were inland yet at my latitude so this is perhaps a sign I'll have a chance for HORE before winter's end?
It is also not lost on me that I already have 6 finch species on my 2012 yardlist, more than any of you guys I believe (update your google doc spreadsheet so I can be sure). Couldn't have predicted that!


  1. Yo Silly stringer,

    It isn't a CORE party, it's a HORE party.

    Stay frosty!

  2. Wow- a HORE party- every guy's dream! SKHA- don't you also know a thing or two about this?

  3. It's going on day three in my backyard, I don't have to dream.

    Talking about a party, doesn't feel like the blog got abandoned?

    Are we so yesterday or what? Feels like high school again.

  4. Yeah, but I am still used to having only 4 active members like back when we started this thang, so it's all good... And it's always been like high school- when wasn't it?

  5. Now that I'm iced in at the wetlands and in the process of moving, my yardbirding has hit a bit of a lull. Did score RTHA at the new place while unloading the trunk on Saturday though...
