Funky Nests in Funky Places Challenge

        Cornell's Lab of Ornithology is sponsoring their annual Funky Nest Competition.  They aren't looking for professional photographs, just funny stories.  Enter photos, stories, poems, audio or video into one of these categories: Cutest, Funkiest, Funniest, and Most Inconvenient.  Prizes include binoculars, DVD's, gift memberships, and more!  Contest ends July 1st. Be sure to check out last year's entries, there are some crazy ways birds are trying to adapt to a human altered environment!

    YOU'VE FOUND A BABY BIRD -  What should you do?
Almost all birds are protected by the International Migratory
Bird Treaty so taking care of baby birds should be left to
licensed Utah Wildlife Rehabilitators.  Many fledglings (especially
Robins) spend some time on the ground and are fed by their parents
so knowing what to do is essential for their survival. Here is
a handy guideline to follow.  

The Cornell Lab of Ornithology also has an excellent
on this subject.


Support Wildlife Research

Keith Day very interested in any sightings of the following species:

Crissal Thrasher,
Bendire's Thrasher, Bell's Vireo
Abert's Towhee, Virginia's Warbler, Yellow-billed Cuckoo

Notations of time, place (as detailed as possible) and numbers are very important.

Records of gender, age, behavior, habitat, etc. would be helpful. His contact information
follows, as well. Thank you.
