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.

Last night's catch

Let's get right to the important stuff first. I had a possible Le Conte's Sparrow around midnight which is here:

Still working out the ID, but the very long duration was obvious but may not be quite the norm (it apparently averages 0.2 seconds, mine was around .15-.18 depending on how you interpret the end of the note. More soon...

Here is a sampling of the mega flight which occurred:

Zeep, possibly BLBW

COYE (lots last night):


CSWA I presume:
 No clue! (there aren't supposed to be any upslurred buzzy warblers, and it's too high for thrushes)


mystery zeep

Sparrow sp.

 WTSP (one of many)


zeep, possibly BLBW

Fun stuff, more soon once I decide if I am getting any ticks out of talll this!
