February POTM Contest



February is universally known as the month of love. Valentines Day is of course a popular day to celebrate love in all it's glorious forms. A rather obscure interesting fact is that some of the first Valentines Day cards and traditions were inspired by wild birds and their mating rituals. February is also National Bird Feeding Month in the United States.

In honor of our feathered friends, this month's theme is a photo of something you have done "For The Birds", either indoor or outdoor birds.

Photoshopping is not allowed in this contest. The contest will be open for entries through February 25, the polls will open on the 26th, the winner will be announced on the first day of March. Our contest winner will receive a Supporting Membership for one full year and the winning photo will be on our Homepage for the month of March.

Here are some examples.
This playtop is much appreciated by the flock.



Or if you prefer something you've done for the backyard beauties.



Only one official entry per household please. "Just For Fun" photos are always welcomed with a smile. Have fun and may the best photo win!

Re: February POTM Contest

Ummm, I'm starting to get my feelings hurt! Does this mean our male mods are more popular than the females? It's already the eighth, I thought we'd have at least a few entries by now.

***Just For Fun***



Wilson being a blue quaker parrot and loving it!
