Great Monday Give: Birds

Pouring here in San Antonio with flooding on the way. And I feel a cold coming on. Awesome. I thought I'd lived through the boy and his swine flu, but who knows... That said. Today for the Great Monday Give, I'll be giving away a vintage copy of the sweet Golden Guide: Birds. It's really my son's favorite book ever, so if you love birds as we do, make sure you comment on this post between now and midnight, Sunday ~ November 1. A winner will be selected at random and posted the following day.

And the winner of last week's give, the 3-book Three Tales of My Father's Dragon series is MoziEsme. Congrats and e-mail me your info to webe(at)soon(dot)com to come face to face with My Father's Dragon and its two followup adventures! Stay dry or get wet, whichever applies. (And stay tuned this week for some spooky book picks to celebrate pumpkin day!)

My kids are just now at the age where we can start doing some backyard birding in earnest--and I'll be learning right alongside them! This looks like a lovely resource.

I loved bird books as a child. I was totally obsessed with pilated wood peckers (not sure why). Thanks for reminding me of a great memory!

I think we must be shopping at the same thrift shops {I live in San Antonio as well} as I keep seeing books I've seen in the shops!

Love the blog BTW.

this is a great book. my late grandmother had this one and several others in her collection. the birds still flock to her home, on any one day i will see 10 to 12 different ones just sitting in her living room for an hour. they are so fun to watch. no need to pick me for the book just wanted to say how great it truly was.

My son is always asking me for the names of the butterflies and birds he sees outside and in books, this would be cool for him. Thanks for such a great blog, I'm constantly typing things into Austin's library catalog search hoping they have them for checkout.

Lovely birds. I had a "Western Birds" book once. The illustration on the cover is so familiar!
