Caption Contest #13

This photograph is begging—crying out even—for a clever caption. It's a shot I took of a bunch of birders (and an old TV) on top of a mountain in West Virginia.

Here's how the Bill of the Birds caption contests work:
1. You study the photo above.
2. You cogitate as long as it takes and then you write a clever, funny caption.
3. You enter said caption via the Comments link on this post.
4. We pick a winner. Deadline is Tuesday, May 25, 2010.
5. If it's your caption that wins, we'll send you a fabulous prize (see below).
6. You bask in the glory of your accomplishment and your general cleverness.


The winner of BOTB Caption Contest #13 will receive a year's subscription to eBWD, the digital edition of Bird Watcher's Digest. You can enjoy this yourself or give it as a gift to a friend. That's a $15 value, people (in US Dollars, not Euros.)

Good luck to one and all and may the most cleverest among you win!

Pilot episode of new reality TV show, "Twitching West Virginia." Ratings were decidedly poor.

"Birder Improv" a new and unsuccessful alternative to pishing has yet to gain wide acceptence within the community.

In retrospect the first day of the short-livewd BWD cable channel could have benefited from somewhat higher production expertise.

Yeah, I'm tired of watching myself, too. Let's change the channel.

The desperate trip leader had promised good looks at a TV, but with the still air that day none of them were flying.

Am I really that disturbing-looking? Let me tune it in a little better.

BWD's venture into a birding television programming was short-lived when they had forgotten that the nation had gone digital!
