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.

Walked out to the car and was greeting by a faint jeep.  A quick scan of the surrounding conifers first reveled a lurking Merlin towards the highway - then a couple of these charmers in the neighbors hemlock.  The first crossbills of any "type" for the Swamp Lair. It's my first new yardbird since mid September and arguably the most overdue (especially with mature Hemlock nearby)....#187 tic.
