Win prizes by answering questions!

In each issue of WildBird, we pose a question in the Lister's Forum and Birder's Back Yard departments. Readers who provide timely responses might see their replies in a future issue, and they might be named Forum Birder or Backyard Birder.

In the November/December issue, the six Forum Birders and six Backyard Birders become eligible for the Birder of the Year title and prizes. WildBird readers vote to award the title and prizes.

This year's Forum Birders and Backyard Birders became eligible for Pete Dunne's Essential Field Guide Companion and The Shorebird Guide, donated by Houghton Mifflin, as well as a Swarovski squall jacket. The 2007 Birder of the Year will receive a Swarovski 8x32 EL and a guided trip to Costa Rica, courtesy of Swarovski Optik North America.

If you'd like to become eligible for the 2008 Birder of the Year, then answer one or two questions in the November/December issue! You might be named Forum Birder or Backyard Birder and receive different books from Houghton Mifflin and other excellent prizes.

Backyard Inquiry: How many species visit your water features during winter?

Forum Focus: What is your favorite birding destination?

Please reply to each question in a separate e-mail, not in one message. The subject line should specify "water" or "destination." Your 250-word response needs to reach us before Nov. 1 and include your full name and address.

Good luck!
