Silly pun I know but I scored a sweet lifer at the swamp lair and I got to chase it to boot. Had 2 whimbrels on the Portage Point sand spit from the Chase Place and made a successful run to the lair to check it off for the yard. It took a total of 10 minutes and it's #184 for the yard.
New birds at Chase Place today included calling SBDO (photo above), CONI, and COHA.
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.
