Ooooo! Look! A bird-related post!

7 Nov

Our friends at 10,000 Birds are at it again.  First they told us about an amazing new book, Bird — it immediately went on my Amazon Wish List (hint, hint!).  Then they upped the ante.  They are hosting a contest and the prize is one of 5 copies of this amazing book.  All you have to do is write an essay about your favorite bird species.  Send it in.  Each week for the next 5 weeks, they’ll pick a winner!  (Winner!) And, the winner will win the book, Bird.

So, my job is now clear.  Somehow in the next few weeks, in between grading the huge stack of ungraded stuff, parent conferences, report cards, and still teaching my students each day, I’ve got to write a brilliant essay about my favorite bird species.  Oh crap.

    A favorite bird? I don’t know if I can pick just one. A great idea, though, but I bet the competition will be tough. It turns out that birdwatchers are very good writers. Who knew?

    And I know what your favorite bird will be… a Raven perhaps?
