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.

most of the time when I visit another yardbirdblogger's yard (SEFI, JOKA, CUDY), my scanning typically results in at least a year yarbird or two for my vaunted opponent. Last spring I got SEFI his life yardbird OSPR, in fact. I scored JOKA at least a couple yearbirds 2 summers ago during my visit to the Kitty's Lair.

This weekend's visit to SEFI V2 was fairly mundane, however. BHCO and WTSP was about the best we could manage.

Back to mad action in Puttville- looking like rain as I wake up. Hoping for a waterfowl fallout so I can clean up that AMWI and NSHO before they're off for the north! Wouldn't mind nailing AMCO and PBGR soon either. Or a white goose (there are plenty around mid MI right now).



  1. I'm pretty sure my personal yardbirding highlight was CAPU excitedly calling out "Purple Finch!" And then watching a RWBL male fly over giving typical chuck notes. The crazy thing is that he wasn't sarcastically calling out a one "Starling". He was serious. Oh well, I now understand why he feels the need to post lousy doc shots of every single yard tick for the year now... 'C'est la vie.

  2. SEFI= relentless. Wow.

    At least I heard the damn call note!

  3. Pointing out yardbirds for me? Was that BBQ or crack pipe your were sharing with Fitzs?

  4. Hey, where is MY new yardbird from CAPU?!?!
