Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden is now accepting entries for its two "Birds of South Florida" Photo Contests as part of the Bird Festival presented by Fairchild and the Tropical Audubon Society. In addition to the annual photo contest for adults, new this year, is a bird photo contest for kids. Entering the contest is free and open to all amateur photographers. The deadline for entries is Friday, September 18.

Photo submissions must be taken in South Florida and sent with the Registration Form filled out and attached via email to bird@fairchildgarden.org. Participants must be 13 years of age or older. Expert judges will review each submission and select the top 20 photos. The judging panel will then choose the first, second, and third place winners, which will be announced before the Keynote Lecture at the Bird Festival on Saturday, October 3. The top three entries will receive a special prize, and the top 20 photos will be digitally displayed throughout the garden and on Fairchild's Facebook page during the Bird Festival, held from October 3-4.

Participants who submit entries for the kids' photography contest must be younger than 13 years of age and must submit a Registration Form with a parent or guardian's signature to littlebird@fairchildgarden.orgPhotos can feature any species of bird. A team of experts will choose the top 3 photos, and winners will be announced before the Keynote Lecture on Saturday, October 3 and will receive special prizes.

The Bird Festival will be held October 1-4 with two days of off-site field trips and two days of on-site activities at Fairchild. The event features bird walks, a photo contest, plant sales, and a lecture by Dr. James A. Kushlan Keynote Speaker Kenn Kaufman, author of "Kingbird 
Highway" and winner of the American Birding Association's lifetime achievement award.

accoding to Joshua Stevens, I should be able to buy the property next to his house, and use it for manure storage - because it's my property and that means there's no limit on what I can do with it.

BIRD LOVERS is the blog! Josh can do whatever he likes and if you don't like it you can do something about it. It appears your skull is storing some manure so I guess that a dung beetle crawling out your nose. Now back to bird lovers. I love birds and every year, for about 10 years now we have a female cardinal like the one shown in the blog in a tree just outside our front door. And it is constantly chirping. And some birds use manure to cake their nest, so yes keep your manure flowing for the birds!
