WHAT: American Idol has gone to the birds....literally. WebVet.com (www.webvet.com), the most comprehensive and credible online resource for pet health and wellness information and education, announces the launch of America’s Birds on Broadway 2008 contest, an online search for the country’s most talented parrots, canaries and other winged animals.

Tuesday, September 16th, a variety of singing and dancing birds entertained tourists and anyone who could hear the talented bird squad as they competed in their own bird reality competition in the heart of New York City.

CONTEST: From 10:00am EST on Tuesday, September 16th through 11:59pm EST on Tuesday, October 14th, bird owners from across the country can log onto www.webvet.com/songbird and submit a maximum two minute video of their bird’s top talent – from belting out Broadway tunes to breaking out “Saturday Night Fever” style dance moves and more. The winner of this inaugural online video contest, to be announced on Wednesday, October 29th, will receive a grand prize of $2,500 and will also be offered the opportunity to make live appearances on behalf of WebVet.

Once uploaded, WebVet’s panel of judges composed of top-flight veterinarians and music industry professionals will provide ongoing commentary on the performances and narrow the field to the top three most promising song birds. Finalists will be unveiled on WebVet.com on Tuesday, October 21st.

From 10:00am EST on October 21st through 11:59pm EST on Tuesday, October 28th, the public is invited to log onto WebVet.com and vote for the bird they believe has the most talent. The winner of America’s Song Bird will be announced at WebVet.com on Wednesday, October 29th.

Pocket-Sized Guide Makes Bird Watching, America’s Fastest Growing Outdoor Activity, Easy for Beginners
Stunning full-page color photographs of the 265 birds of the Inland Northwest and Northern Rockies (Idaho, Eastern Washington, Eastern Oregon, and Western Montana) along with their descriptions, the basics of bird watching, and a regional checklist.

It’s a stunning figure: over six hundred thousand people in the Inland Northwest and Northern Rockies feed or watch birds. Consequently, Birds of the Inland Northwest and Northern Rockies is the perfect guide for these individuals who are interested in the birds in their backyards.

Sharp, full-color photographs, color coding by species, a compact, easy-to-carry size, and space to record sightings make this a useful tool for those interested in learning how to identify the local birds and where they live, what they eat, how to attract birds to their yards, and where to find new birds.

Birding is fun for individuals and families alike. As the authors say, “It is easy to get started, inexpensive, improves your observation skills, and allows us to appreciate the natural world and the careful stewardship it requires.”

Birds of the Inland Northwest and Northern Rockies by Harry Nehls, Mike Denny, and Dave Trochlell is available at www.rwmorse.com and at chain and independent bookstores, wild bird and nature shops, national park visitor centers, feed stores, nurseries and garden centers everywhere.
