Hey Kids! It's the BOTB Caption Contest #8 and this is your chance to win a matted limited-edition print of the current cover painting for Bird Watcher's Digest. Our prints are signed and numbered by the artist who created the original.

The current cover is a painting of elegant trogons by Lisa Walraven. You can preview it here. Here is a thumbnail of the cover painting.


Please use the Comments link for this post to submit your clever caption. I will choose a winner (and explain the situation depicted in the photograph) on Monday, July 20.

¡Buena suerte, amigos!

"Cause I'm as free as a bird now,
And this bird you can not change.

Bill-did I ever tell you that you are my hero? I can fly higher than
an eagle...you are the wind beneath my wings.

Soon after the Caspian tern debacle at the Holiday Inn, Bill realized he could no longer incorporate the group hypnosis segment into his keynote speech.

On a wing and a prayer, he kicked with his left leg, looked into the distance and began to flip his lid, er, flap his arms, all the time calling, "coo wicka kicka coo coo coo."
That's when it was determined that it was time for a holiday.
