2014 Birds of BirdNote calendar

The 2014 BirdNote calendar is SOLD OUT.

Thank you for your interest in the BirdNote calendar--the calendar is SOLD OUT. But a book store near you may have a couple copies available.

BirdNote’s mission –- BirdNote creates and tells remarkable stories about birds and nature. Using words, sounds, and images, BirdNote informs and inspires a nationwide audience.

That same core value is reflected in the photography of Gerrit Vyn. Gerrit is a conservation photographer and a natural history media producer at the renowned Cornell Lab of Ornithology. The 2014 calendar is a colorful testament to Gerrit’s dedication to tell the story of birds: a pair of Nene from Hawaii; a Black Turnstone on nest in Siberia; a roosting Eastern Screech Owl in upstate New York. BirdNote is delighted to work with Gerrit to communicate the remarkable lives of birds –– and what people can do to help protect them.

Great Gray Owl

Despite being only 2½ feet tall, the Great Gray Owl has piercing yellow eyes that are about the size of those of humans. In addition to their large eyes, these owls are also blessed with keen hearing, amplified by large facial disks. This combination enables them to see in near darkness, when most of the species in this family prefer to hunt. Great Gray Owls in the pursuit of prey can punch through ice-encrusted snow strong enough to hold the weight of a human. Great Gray Owls breed predominantly in the boreal forests of Canada but winter along the US/Canadian border in numbers that vary from year to year.


Calendar is printed on 30% post-consumer-waste Forest Stewardship Council-certified paper. BirdNote is a non-profit organization. All calendar sales benefit BirdNote.
