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.

OR OR ORiole Hat-trick

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.


  1. I have only ever had one of these for this yard.

    After washing my phone this week I thought it was a goner, too. Sealed in a desiccant bag for better than 80 hours did the trick though.

  2. Hair dryer for an hour ought to do the trick, JOKA. OROR is very good- I do have a chance on that bird but need to get it soon.

  3. hum, three OROR didn't get much response. How about Black-bellied Plover, Semipalmated Plover, Dowitcher, and White-winged Scoter?

  4. Oh I love the shorebirds you are scoring Swampie! I was uber-pumped to find 2 BBPL with Harry at a shorebird location AABO tipped me off to in Kane County (my home turf) yesterday AM!
