Winner’s Circle:

So with the beautiful weather we’ve been having recently (not this week, yuck!) I decided to fill my feeders, pack up and head off to explore l’isle-aux-Grues – the Island of the Cranes which is about 3 hours and one short ferry ride from where I live. It was an amazing visit to the island with lots of birds, lots of wind (we were tent camping with winds up to 60mph – 100km/hr which was pretty exciting, but also some of the best cheese I’ve ever tasted. It’s one of Québec’s best kept secrets, but we produce some of the finest cheeses in the world, and l’isle-aux-grues makes the best in Québec! Anyway, it was a wonderful visit and I have some pictures to share with you.

Dr. Bird gives a great answer to a question we get asked quite often : How do birds see color? On the headlines this week stories about the amazing steps being taken to save the Orange-bellied Parrot, how Google has taken a part of their campus and turned it into a Great Egret Rookery and finally, how feeding Pigeons in Thailand can cost you $800 and get you 3 months in jail.

We’ll be introducing some changes to Winner’s Circle as of the next contest. We are changing the judging to a panel of judges including 1 professional photographer, 3 previous contest winners and 3 randomly picked audience members. If you are interested in becoming a judge, please send me an email on tatsiana@bromebirdcare.com

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Have a great week everyone (brrr – it’s getting cold!)
