Scored a Franklin's/Laughing Gull from the Chase Place on May 29th ....was hoping for a little wing-flap from the gulls but I got nothing. Not sure the useful field marks for separating those two at 3/4 mile.
Shorebirds have been pretty good with PESA, BBPL, and WRSA the highlights (also a pair of WIPH) -- I'm behind on my totals but will get that straight in early June. Looking forward to fall migration - there, I said it. Worst spring ever.
This was definitely the highlight of migration from the Swamp Lair this week (showing precisely the number of lifers Harry got from the deck) ;
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.
