Here are the results from our show yesterday. Our show continues to grow year after year. We had even more entries than we had last year. Thanks to everyone who joined us or sent us an entry. We had a great time at The Farmhouse in Mount Vernon. There were some very impressive birds competing yesterday. We'll post pictures as soon as we have them available.

WBF continued its education program with a presentation at Blaine Elementary to approximately 160 4th graders. In addition to the well known brant Foreman, we introduced Echo the wood duck in his first appearance. He really stole the show, strolling among the students during Maynard’s talk about waterfowl characteristics and their habitat needs. At one point Echo caused quite a stir by perching on the lap of a very surprised listener. We finished with close encounters that produced some special moments.
