Around 4PM I was going through my HORE pics from my Kent Co. lifer seen earlier today, when I heard a distant sound through the live feed microphone. Turned on Audacity and recorded the live feed. You can all expect many more similar scores from throughout 2012, so I thought I'd prepare you for the format in which I am going to kick your asses:
Ran outside and saw this 1/4 mile overhead, soaring to the north:
I am not sure I won't have peenting AMWO tonight. I am still in shorts and comforatble...
Side note: I flushed like 50 redpolls from the feeders this morning, and they didn't return. Hopes for HORE in the yard are gaining ground.
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.
