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.

SEFI Getting a Thrashing


Just for the record, BRTH (#102 life) is an uber good bird around here.  There's basically no scrubby type habitat anywhere in the neighborhood.  This bird was hopping between my "conifer grove" and the neighbor's crab apple tree.


  1. I'm gonna freakin pull RECR with my lone White Pine with this talk. Just you watch AABO.

  2. Yeah, after you take a nice long drag on a REFR...

  3. BTW mad props on a suburban BRTH with zero understory. I've seen that neighborhood and I'm very surprised you got that species.

  4. the crab apple tree is the closest thing I've got....plus my man made brush pile that has pulled in some Zonos and wrens

  5. This species will occasionally do this- I had it in urban GR a few springs ago, and saw it in oak canopy forest at Higgins Lake a month ago... Nice tick AABO dabi!
