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.

35, 36, 37....

Two male Common Mergs (35) were scanned from the roof top vantage day before yesterday as they flew over the Kalamazoo Lake basin towards Lake MI. A four year old Bald Eagle was the only other highlight in the time I spent up there.

The first Coop (36) of the yard this year finally made itself visible. There has been a predator around all winter keeping the birds wary and shy of the feeders and this is likely it - a big female and very stealthy.

Tonight I did another roof sit after work and prior to dusk trying for more waterfowl, but only came up with a fly-over flock of 30 Red-wings (37). A cheery flock of 6 AMRO kept me company, as well. No Timberdoodle this evening, but they should be here soon!
