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.

One Hundred & friggin' Ninety!
The roof is a valuable resource for me. This evening it afforded me an excellent view of a yard lifer, a 1st cycle GBBG (40/190), as it flew towards me and then floated off to the west in the direction of Lake MI. Amongst a few HERG the lumbering, larger, black-schnozed, b & w checker-backed bird stood out like a sore thumb. I figured this bird was coming due, so it doesn't surprise me, but it sure feels good to now be able to set my sites on 200!
