...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.
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.
