Are you one of WildBird's Facebook fans?

Have you joined us on Facebook as a WildBird fan? If so, you already know that we like to chat about birding and the magazine. We ask for fans' input for the magazine's content; we create photo albums of our readers' bird photos (Wandering Eye), our readers (On The Fly) and our sponsored teams (Great Texas Birding Classic, shown) -- and we give away bird books!

Sometimes our shelves become too full with review copies from publishers (thank you, publishers!), so we like to share the largesse with other birders. Keep an eye open for an update that says something like

WildBird asks that you provide the common name of the "marsh poodle" if you want to receive "Shorebirds of North America, Europe, and Asia: A Photographic Guide" by Richard Chandler http://bit.ly/1MsZOn The first correct answer garners a copy!

So, which book will be up for grabs next? Will you see the update before anyone else? Good luck!

Above: The TAMUG WildBirders -- cosponsored by Texas A&M University Galveston and WildBird -- competed in the one-day contest of the 2009 Great Texas Birding Classic, birded Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge (shown) and other sites, and won the Upper Coast division. Go team!

What a great way to use extra review copies! Would you like a copy of my two Birder Murders, "The Boreal Owl Murder" and "Murder on Warbler Weekend"? I'd love to share them with WildBird fans!

Dawn: Thanks for sharing details of the 11.21 event. Previous plans (and the 7-hour drive to the site) will keep me from joining y'all.

Jan: You're welcome to send a copy of each. Thanks for the offer.
