It's Bird Week here at TMG, in honor of The Great Backyard Bird Count coming up at the end of this week, from Friday, February 18, through Monday, February 21.
Join us as our contributors talk about the birds in their own backyards and beyond.
We're also featuring a giveaway of this lovely Charley Harper poster:
The poster is 16-1/2 inches wide x 23-1/4 inches high and would look great hanging on the wall of a bedroom or playroom!
To participate in the giveaway, simply join in The Great Backyard Bird Count. Follow the guidelines for the Count. (Here's a PDF version of these instructions.) Plan to count birds for at least 15 minutes on at least one day of the count (or more if you choose).
You don't need a blog to participate. International families outside of North America, you may also participate in the giveaway; follow the guidelines for the Bird Count, but skip the step of entering your tally on the Bird Count website.
Then, come back here next Tuesday, February 22, through Thursday, February 24, and post your bird count totals in one of the posts for those days. The winner will be drawn via a random number generator, and the winning entry will be posted on Friday, February 25.
We hope you'll join us for Bird Week here at TMG and have fun watching birds wherever you may be!
