A. Robin, Red-winged Blackbird, and Purple Finch. Yipee!
Weird day: it was 82 degrees as I was watching about 150 C. Redpolls devour my niger thistle. Not often that you get to watch redpolls from your living room with your windows open. 150 redpolls make a lotta noise.
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.
