Winner of Listener Survey Drawing Announced

Winner of Listener Survey Drawing Announced

Congratulations to Lynn D. of Westby, WI, the winner of our random drawing for Nikon binoculars! Lynn graciously shared the story behind this incredible photo of Red-bellied Woodpeckers – and her love of nature.

"If you sit still on a snow-covered log long enough, you may be rewarded, like I was. This red belly proceeded to fly directly over my head. My dad taught all of us kids the importance of nature and all of the living things that it supports. He would take us for walks in the woods, and each walk contained a lesson. I often detour to one of the many walking trails around my hometown or on my way to work in La Crosse to see and hear the amazing wildlife that we are blessed to have in this area. I first became aware of BirdNote while researching a bird sound I heard last fall. Since then, I have become an avid listener. You provide a great resource to all!"

Special thanks to the Seattle Audubon Nature Shop for contributing the binoculars.
