Birding Challenge - my first official act
It's great what sort of things you can get up to when you're in the same room as the people who sign the cheques*!
Actually, to be honest, this was Noah's idea, but he wanted somebody that cared about the subject to do the donkey work.
So, announcing my first actual official Instructables Challenge!
As a guide, I'm after something a little bit beyond a bird feeder. Feel free to enter those, but I'd like folk to stretch themselves a bit.
For instance, I am, personally, very tone deaf (and I know a few older birders that are losing their hearing altogether) - can you create an app that would help me identify birds by their calls?
Or is there something cool that you've done to your birding kit, and other birders try and copy?
Or maybe you have a particular way of ensuring great photographs of birds in the open?
There are hundreds of dollars' worth of birding equipment at stake here.
Oh, and I'd appreciate those bloggers and tweeters out there to highlight the challenge as well - the more entries we get, the bigger the prizes get.
(Look how excited I got - I used bigger font all the way through!)
*Ha, that upset this American spell-checker!
