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.

The "Birder on the Phone" Effect

...and it happens once again.  Yesterday (01 May), I was chatting with SIPU and I spied 5 SACRs out my office window coming in on a flight patch right over The Cheddarlands.  This was actually a yard lifer.  I put in huge amounts of effort last year to get this species but never had any luck.  Thanks SIPU!

I stepped outside just to have a quick gander at the sky and ended up with a BGGN year tick.

  1. Any time. As long as you stay this many species behind me I am fine with it.

    You can all thank CUDY for calling me the other day, causing me to walk outside to a singing CCSP which hadn't been there an hour earlier.
