Gosh, I havent been in the lead on this thing in, like, three years.
HUGEMUNGO movement of geese last evening -- outta 2-5K birds I finally pulled down a SNGO. Other delights included Forster's Tern and Orange-crowned Warbler. Definitely a Chase-man now. I've only been to the swamp liar once this spring sans scope. I am so laa-zy.
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.
