With the addition of both a 1st summer and female Orchard Oriole at my neighbors hummingbird feeder yesterday I think I can safely say I've seen it all in that department.
Other firsts for yesterday include Black-bellied Plover, baby bluebirds, and Chris putting my iPhone through the wash with about a week of migration notes and a whole lotta photos. My iLife feels over.
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.
