April’s hidden bird might’ve been a fossil but it wasn’t buried. The Archaeopteryx, believed to be the world’s first bird, was in our Viewpoints category under the essay “Two-Fisted Birdwatching and Science Fiction.”
We collected the names of everyone who told us where the Archaeopteryx was hidden.
We tossed them into a hat. Then picked one name at random. Aurora Rose D.
Congratulations, Aurora Rose. You get a Two-Fisted Bird Watcher coffee cup. Same kind that made a cameo appearance in the movie, “The Big Year.”
Now on to May’s contest.
May’s Hidden Bird: Wood Duck
We’re not talking about a wooden duck. This is a Wood Duck. A photo of a living bird. This duck is so colorful you might expect to see him in the tropics. But Wood Ducks are fairly widespread and common, even in Illinois.
The photo of a Wood Duck, with no caption, is tucked into the writing somewhere on this website.
You can go birding right from your keyboard.
When you spot the Wood Duck, tell us exactly where by using our Contact page. Please don’t use the “comment” option below the listing. When we hear from you, we’ll let you know your entry has been received.
Then you’ll be in our random drawing around the end of the month. If your name’s picked, you’ll receive a Two-Fisted Bird Watcher mug. Good luck.
