I am honored and excited to be one of the 12 finalists for WildBird’s 2008 Birder of the Year contest. Every reader of the magazine has an opportunity to be considered by responding to one of two questions in every issue. The magazine’s staff then chooses one respondent for each of the questions and awards them some nice prizes. Even better, they are then in the running to be crowned the Birder of the Year. The winner receives a pair of Swarovski binoculars and a trip for two to Costa Rica!
Magazine subscribers can vote for the BOTY by mailing in the ballot on page 35 of the current November/December issue. If there are any subscribers out there reading this, I would, of course, appreciate your vote for me, Grant McCreary.
Sorry for this shameless request, but naturally I am excited about this! I promise to get some real content posted soon, including an interview with the one and only Pete Dunne.
If anyone’s wondering, the question I responded to dealt with travel-related bird books. Big surprise there, huh?
