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.

I'm calling it
Who says they aint making anymore lakeshore? Chris and I meandered to our "property line"last night which has been disappearing steadily for the past two years -- the waters edge is now .6 miles from the "ordinary high water mark"(our backyard). In September Lake Michigan was 1 foot above the all time low water mark of the mid 1960s. It seems to have dropped even more since then so we are calling the bottom! The photo tells it all.
With the low water we our property now measures 150' x 3,389' or 11.6 acres - how extreme is that??
