It's the Bill of the Birds Caption Contest #5 and you, mi amigo, could be the LUCKY WINNER! The entrant who writes the winning caption will receive their choice of a year's subscription to Bird Watcher's Digest (a $20 value!) or $25 off an individual registration for the Midwest Birding Symposium (Yes, that's a $25 value for you math majors out there!)

Deadline for entries is midnight Saturday, February 28, 2009. The Caption Contest Awards Selection Executive Sub-committee will deliberate ad nauseum and will announce a winner Sunday morning, March 1, 2009.

Although excellent birders, the Thompson family was still trying to get the hang of their new tabletop jigsaw.

When asked why they got a Boston Terrier, the Thompson family explained that the Rottweiler they'd had previously just didn't work out.

The turf war between the Whipple West Siders and the Darbyville Dorks had been brewing for some time and had already taken a hefty toll. But photos of the Whipple Crew flashing gang signs took it over the edge. Retaliation was called for!

Use of the secret hex sign is occasionally required to ward off "them" neighbors. A barking, HYPER dog would also be useful... but he isn't !

Stranded in a remote area, our brave family puts cheerful smiles on their faces while desperately trying to remember which digit to extend for hitching a ride from passerby.

Is that the birder's super-top-secret way of "flipping the bird"?

I came on here with a brilliantly funny caption, read cyberthrush's, and I'm bowing out gracefully. Perfect . . .
