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.

At The Waterhole Yesterday

Only the Black-throated Blue was new for the year (141).


  1. Whoa! What's the status of CARW up by you, RIBR?

    1. There are CARW on territory every year here in town. Four this year. They are always prevalent in the forested bluffs along the lakeshore. However, I have only found a single nest along the lakeshore in May 2006 on a county big day with DAZL.

      This bird is from a family group of at least three birds that have been active in the yard for the last 10 days. The youngster is getting his singing voice so is often of key and squeaky. Its very entertaining to listen to.

  2. Nice to see some posts from you guys! Nice birds too. I have almost no warblers left up here, and my CARW was only here briefly this spring unfortuantely, before I had the bath.

  3. The blog just was resuscitated after a 2 month CAPU-induced comma! Amazing what migration does for yardbirding...

  4. I also want to be credited for reviving this beoch, not just killing it! Keep it real, now.
