Winning Caption #1: Why should bowlers be the only ones with cool shoes?

Winning Caption #2: This is so Prez Bush can see them coming!


Congratulations to Virginia's own Alan Pulley, keeper of the Birds 'N Such blog, for his TWO winning entries!

Alan will receive a year's subscription to Bird Watcher's Digest as well as everlasting notoriety as the winner of this Bill of the Birds Photo Caption Contest.

A special thank you to all who entered. Choosing one winner was really tough. Also finishing in the top 5 were the following players: MikeMcD, jdr, OpposableChums, jomo, and Dubs. You can find their entries, along with all of the other captions submitted at this link.

Tune in next week for another round of caption-writing zaniness.

Great captions...but the question is what really were they doing with that orange stuff on their shoes???

Larry: It's an anti-burr and chigger strategy that they employ on the King Ranch in Texas. The grass where we were is full of both sand burrs and chiggers. The tape prevents them from latching on to your shoes, sox, and plants legs.

Plus it looks awesome!

Thanks again Bill, it was fun! There were a lot of funny captions.

I personally think the caption contest idea was made up just so BOTB could get more comments on his blog than a certain Science Chimp gets with photos of Chet as a puppy.

I'm just sayin' ...

Pretty funny stuff, Bill and caption-writers!

Hmmmmmmmm... I wouldn't be as worried about Prez Bush as I'd be about his VP...

Just a thought.

Happy Holidays to you and yours!!!
