Love the contest! I hope that my models in a natural world will be worthy competition for the more professional shutterbugs.

I have been teaching my sons about birds for years but now my 13-year-old is learning about them in school, too. He is now teaching me things I never new! It’s great to have something the whole family is interested in. My boys will just sit and watch the birds for quite a while 🙂

I tend to do a little “backyard birdwatching” when I am camping. Just sitting in nature hearing them all sing and “talk” to each other is amazing!

Thanks to you bird watchers who posted for our giveaway! We decided that all three will receive a Birdhouse Predator Protector. We only have 2 of each style, so Doug and Sheri get first choice of style, and the Mike gets to choose. I will contact you all by email. Happy Bird Watching!
