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.

I like the newby's.  Yesterday had a small kettle of BWHA at the Chase Place -- my first BWHAs in the spring.  I chased back to the Swamp Lair and had a conglomeration of 50 that formed a couple of kettles and headed off N and NW.   A quick trip to the deck produced a lovely PEFA - #182 for the lair.

The night before I scored Short-eared Owl out in the marsh which is sweet given that I have seen exactly 1 each spring and fall season.

Still well behind the Put Hut but trying to stay in the game-o-la.  #68 and #62 (Chase and Lair, respectively).  Picked up a BRCR this morning at the Chase Place.  The EABL layed her first egg yesterday....

Life proceeds.


  1. BWHA has been thin down here- I still need it for Kent and have only had 2 singletons pass by the house so far. The week of cold north winds is beginning to grate on me. I cannot be far from YEWA, BWWA, GCFL, BGGN, WAVI, BHVI, and tons of other species being present in the yard...

    SORA continues to give me fits- I tape daily and nightly with the wildlife caller toward Amazie and cannot seem to get a response. Did have my 2nd GRYE for the year yesterday.

  2. BWWA, NAWA, BTNW, PAWA, HOWR, BAOR this morn before work in the yard.

  3. Nice RIBR! Good to see you posting...
