Dear ,

Happy Holidays! We have been as busy as elves here at Thayer Birding Software during the past few months.
First, we redesigned our web pages so things are easier to find and each page pops up almost instantly. If you have not visited www.ThayerBirding.com in a while, check it out!
Second, the annual changes to the bird taxonomic lists were released by scientists at the American Ornithologists' Union a few months ago. All these changes are available to you with the free download (for version 4.0, 4.5, 5.0 and 5.5 - see instructions below.) The scientists changed the name of Common Moorhen to Common Gallinule and moved the Falcons far away from the Hawks and Eagles!?!
Third, we continue to have fun with our new Facebook page (www.Facebook.com/ThayerBirdingSoftware) We have been posting interesting (or strange) bird-related articles we find. Once in a while Petey the Parrot has a Tip for users of our software. We also let you know about upcoming free updates and more!
Finally, we decided to ask folks "Are You a Birder?" See the very interesting results of our Survey 











You can share your love of birds with Friends and Relatives! Give them one of the Thayer Birding DVDs - help them become the local bird "expert."
This is a wonderful gift for kids and grandkids. We get lots of fan mail from 4 and 5 year olds who love to hear the birds sing! (We also get lots of fan mail from college professors who use the DVD as a course requirement in their Ornithology classes!)
Order multiple copies for folks on your gift list and SAVE. Select the DVDs at our store:
