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.

#70 for the year

Rule of thumb for The Cheddarlands: don't bother even glancing up into the silver maples.  Focus ALL attention on the two locust trees in the front.  9 times of 10, a singing warbler will be in either of these two trees.  Twas the case this afternoon while making a quick mail/birding run [yeah yeah...I know-pathetic].

I stopped dead in my tracks with a BLPW belting it out right above me.  In locust tree uno.  #70 for the year.  Took a while to actually find the bugger.  Blackpolls are like the CONWs of the canopy...what a cool warb though...man, what a cool bird!
