White-winged Crossbill! #100 for the year and #108 for life.
I thought it woulda been RECR...or RLHA. I'll take it though! Now I can breath a sigh of relief...
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.
