you don't get to claim winter finches over Yoopers for too long. Had a calling Red Crossbill go over the Haas Hill yesterday. Been getting them north of town too when I hawk watch.
Woke up to a Creeper singing away the other morning. I can't remember if it was last year or the year before I missed this spp in the yard.
I gots you in my eye Fitzy....
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.
