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.

Century bird

I managed to snag a half hour of watching the sky today and was rewarded with a sharp looking dark morph RLHA circling up high with 115 SACR before setting its wings and zipping over (#100).  It was followed shortly by 4 CACG (#101) with some CANGs (way overdue considering how common CACG is around here).  We're actually moving back up to WI next week, so this will likely be my last blog post from this yard.  It's been fun, I was glad to break the symbolic 100 barrier for this yard before leaving.
#99 came in the form of some CORE in the neighbors birches last week.  And I had my county RECR about 300 yards north of the yard a few weeks back, but I wasn't in the yard when I picked them up - near miss!


  1. You and AABO duking it out - super.

    Where are you moving in WI?

  2. Moved on Thursday last week. Final yardbird came in the form of a RECR while loading the truck. 102 total.
    Also of note - my folks yard in WI had a RECR yesterday - 213th species I've recorded in that yard.
