Birding Blog Carnival Quiz - Winner No.1

We have a winner for the first prize of the quiz of the I and the Bird #75 - Birding blog carnival that I hosted. And the winner is...drumroll please...Julie Bourque from Quebec, Canada! Congradulations!
Julie is the first person to send in all the correct answers and gets to pick which one of the three books by Nishantha Gunawardena on offer that he wish to receive as his prize.
There are two more books to be won and I have decided to extend the deadline until 31 May, 2008. So, please visit the IATB #75 and send in your answers to amila AT birdwingnature DOT come soon! I will announce the winners on the 1 June, 2008.
The winner is expected to make a short speech here via a comment.
The above YouTube piece showing the first audition of Paul Potts in the first series of Britain's Got Talent is one of my personal favourites. It is such a powerful television moment that I am never tired of watching. I really like when the underdog wins!

I have to say it was quite a surprise to win since this was my first submission to a birding blog carnival! Beginner's luck I guess... I'd like to thank my parents who gave me my first pair of binoculars and my first Peterson field guide, my great husband who takes care of the kids while I'm away birding and last but not least, Amila, for hosting a great carnival. I had a lot of fun reading all the blogs and looking for the answers.

Happy birding to all,

My best wishes to the I and the Bird #75 and to Amila Salgado for doing such a great job in getting people to read through all the interesting blogs by organizing a birding blog carnival and challenging everyone to a quiz. While I’m glad to be a quiz winner I really enjoyed reading through all the blogs and it is very encouraging to see the number of people who are interested as well as concerned about the future survival of birds. I wish all of them the very best in their future endeavors.
