Prizes and Other Cool Stuff

For those not aware but may be interested, The Round Robin blog, sponsored by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, is asking for the assistance of anyone and everyone that may be interested in helping them re-organize their website. In their most recent post, they’ve added an extra incentive to those willing to participate!! Their awarding prizes to random individuals that participate in a short exercise that will help put certain items in various categories. There is no right or wrong answer. The prizes will be given to three respondents selected at random. Hurry, because this only last until noon, (Eastern Time), July 28th. It took me only 10 minutes to complete.

Here’s a link to their latest post that explains the details and what the prizes will be:
Here is another neat citizen science project being offered by Project Wildbird that studies seed and feeder preferences of wild birds in the United States and Canada. They began this study back in 2005 and it currently continues through at least December of this year. They are inviting all people who feed birds in the US and Canada to participate in the study by completing an online survey of your backyard feeding experiences that’s based on your daily observations of 3 different types of bird feeders and seed. In exchange for giving them a little bit of your time - and here’s the cool part - they will provide you with the bird feeders and seed. Follow the links below for more details:
