Well at least the point blank shot I missed due to leaving the card in the computer wasn't a Connecticut. Instead it was the only nonresident species to come into my lure just now: a spanking Philly Vireo. Let's hope I see it again. Camera is ready **with** card. 175/176
HETH, when I get it in the next week, will finally even out the discrepancy in my year and life yard lists. 180 here I come. 185 would be a nice way to end the year, don't you think?
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.
