WSB youth team on Martha Stewart's show

Sheila Lego of New Jersey Audubon Society sent word that one of the World Series of Birding's youth teams was scheduled to participate in an episode of The Martha Stewart Show. How cool is that?

The Steiner Merlins won first place in their division (grade 1-5) of the annual competition that raises money for conservation projects. The five girls -- Kelley Jewel, Tabitha Lansinger, Michele Long, Kiley Pignataro and Shannon Pignataro -- planned to give a WSB T-shirt to Martha during the taping today.

The designer of this year's WSB shirt? None other than Jennifer Brumfield. I'm hoping that she and the shirt receive good visibility during the show, scheduled to air this Friday. Look for your local showing here (left-hand column).

Does this mean that we might see Martha out in the field sporting bins supported by a crimson grosgrain ribbon?

Just joshing. Kudos to the Steiner youth team; anyone getting this level of media attention for birding deserves high praise from all the field glass tribe.

Exactly, John. I'm especially pleased that Sheila and Marleen suggested a youth team when Stewart's show contacted NJAS. The girls made quite an impression during Sunday's awards brunch.
