|High Voter Turn-out for 2010 Poster|
|Because so many of you responded to the opportunity to vote on the 2010 IMBD poster design, we had to offer two surveys. The 336 votes received indicate that the black poster is the favored, with 198 people selecting it as their top choice. Burrowing Owl took the lead as a species that should be included on the 2010 t-shirt, with 203 votes. Thanks again for helping design International Migratory Bird Day. |

We'll be moving from our usual course site in West Virginia and hope some of our partners out west will be able to take part. This course is a great way for educators to learn how to incorporate birds and bird conservation into their activities. It is not a bird i.d. course, and we'll focus on about one dozen species to teach the basics of bird watching.
