I've been receiving this free calendar for 4+ years and have never been
solicited for anything. It's packed with birdy information, and the
photos are awesome. It measures 9.5" by 11" - when open and hanging on
my wall, it's double that size. Plus, now that I'm living in
Patzcuaro, Mexico, they are willing to mail it to me here.

The Barataria-Terrebonne National Estuary Program is Again
Developing its Next Bird Calendar for Louisiana

 

Again this year, the Barataria-Terrebonne National Estuary
Program is developing the next Louisiana bird calendar to be
distributed to
birders for free.  The 2009 calendar will focus on warblers presenting
information on those species that nest across the state, information
about migration,
what warblers eat, warbler conservation, and of course – beautiful
photogra
phs of some of our most colorful friends.

 

Did you know that Louisiana’s geographic position
along major migratory pathways makes it an important stopover for
transient
warblers; that Louisiana’s vast expanse of marsh, swamp, and bottomland
hardwoods makes this area important to a number of nesting species of
warblers;
that thousands upon thousands of warblers considered temperate migrants
spend
their winter months here in Louisiana.  They all depend on the
productive
habitats of Louisiana where they feed, rest, and in some cases nest.

 

However, these wetlands that sustain our unique culture and
this tremendous productivity are in trouble.  Since the early
1900’s, too much of Louisiana’s coast has been lost to a variety of
factors.

 

To increase awareness and appreciation for Louisiana’s
natural habitats, we are developing again this year a calendar to be
distributed to interested birders for free.  This calendar is designed
to
promote awareness of Louisiana’s land loss crisis – to educate
people about the connection between that landscape and the migratory
birds that
use them.

 

To obtain a copy of this calendar for free, email us at
richard at btnep.org and provide us with your
name and address.  In the past we have partnered with the American
Birding
Association to distribute the calendar to members of ABA, however this
yea
r we
are working with individual ornithological societies, so ABA members
are not
guaranteed a copy of the calendar for 2009.  So contact us directly. 
Don’t put it off.  Contact us now to ensure that you receive a copy
of the 09 calendar.
