February 2021 POTM Contest

Reach out and touch!!

February POTM explores the physicality of reaching out between human and bird, bird and human, bird to bird. Original, manipulated images, or videos 90 seconds/less of touching or related contact are welcome. Inspiration for theme by telecommunications giant AT&T marketing campaign "Reach Out and Touch Someone." (some of you may vaguely recall the jingle from last century)


Contest opens February 1, closes 25th. Polling runs February 26 through 28, winner announced March 1. Guidelines and pointers:
-The winner will receive premium membership for one year, image adorns the forum welcome page during March and April.
-You may post multiple photos or videos, but please designate the official entry or "just for fun" submission.
-Safety is paramount, always consider the welfare of your fids.
-Any questions, send me a PM for clarification!


Squeaky responding to step-up command.


Of course the other Goffins in the room wanted some love! Left to right: Peanut, Squeaky, Abby

Re: February 2021 POTM Contest (under construction)

Nice one, Scott! Perfectly ties together the connections of the Valentine's month and maybe doing so from a distance, thanks to covid, without specifically saying Valentine's day. Beautiful! And yup, guess I'm old. I absolutely remember the at&t jingle from last century, but being the auditory type, I suppose I should...

Re: February 2021 POTM Contest

This contest offers tons of opportunities!

Hey that jingle is over 21 years old. We have members that would have never hear it... That would include mobile phones with battery carrying cases and shoulder straps and a phone connection base hardwired and physically mounted with screws in the car.

Re: February 2021 POTM Contest

I'm happy to see those oh too cute Goffins they are adorable!

Because it took so long to have Orbit trust hands, this will probably be my official entry.

Not to get off topic here...buttttt..anyone remember Mickey Dee's "change back from your dollar"? a hamburgaler,small fry and small drink for 99 cents? Years ago when I used to eat that junk I said that to the young girl serving me and she looked at me as if I was from outer space.

Nice theme Scott! Love your beady-eye'd..err I mean Goffin family

Re: February 2021 POTM Contest

What a poignant theme. For months we haven't been able to reach out and touch loved ones with the pandemic. With the gradual introduction of viable vaccines we can see at last a time when life will give us some normality again. I would normally reach out and touch Syd. Many days he is my only conversation, but this last week he nips more than touches. Hopefully by Valentines Day he will be back in loving mode again. I can only hope.
