I don't normally post on Tuesdays, but I wanted you to know that 10,000 Birds is giving away three free copies of Bill Thompson III's The Young Birder's Guide. (Hey, I just realized that's Bill of the Birds, the guy who wrote about the giant dinosaur of cheese!). Young birders under the age of 16 can write a 100-word essay on the topic of Why Watching Birds is Fun to be entered into the drawing. Adults can enter, too, by writing on the topic of how to get children interested in birding or by helping to promote the contest. But the deadline is tomorrow, May 28th! You can read more about the contest and how to enter at Young Birder's Guide Giveaway and Deadline for Great Giveaways. Good luck!
[Update: 3/5/09 -- There's a new web address for Bill of the Birds.]
