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.

Post hoc yardlifer

Ah, so confused...entering some ebird "data" realized a RUTU at the end of May (28th) from the lair was #185 for the yard.

On Saturday had a couple of new birds at Chase Place including a pair of Virginia Rails that showed well from the backyard and a Marsh Wren within ear-shot.  I think as the cattails mature these birds are moving in because they definitely weren't around in May (Marsh Wren in particular was nearby but in wetter habitat).  Also offshore a Black Tern - made me think of our hero.

  1. Thanks for the BLTE harassment Kat, I'll have to remember to thank you for that next time we meet. Not at all a sensitive topic.

    RUTU is awesome. So is 117 correct for your 2012 yardlist?
