Broke through #190 barrier yesterday with a chorry chorry eminating from 2 yards down. Yep, Mourning Warbler was a new species for me despite what seems like an abundance of habitat. The bird was still around this morning.
Picked up a Pee-wee at the Chase house - not singing, some I'm assuming it's an Eastern.
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.
