hello tweeties,

my first bird in 2013 was the same as last year's first bird: carrion
crow, Corvus corone corone. several hundreds of these birds fly over
my crib on their way to and fro their evening roost. this is a
disjunct population from the eastern carrion crow, C. c. orientalis,
which may be elevated to full species status at some point in the
future. (this would give me another "tick" on my species list since i
saw many eastern carrion crows whilst living in tokyo.)

the second bird species i saw this year was also the same as last
year's second bird: Eurasian (common) magpie, Pica pica.

hope you all have a happy and productive new year,
