A long awaited waterbird finally flew through the yard today. A female Hooded Merg gave a brief appearance over the south field bringing my life yard list to 197!
Overall great movement of birds the last couple days.
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.
