Swarovski Optik and Bird Watcher's Digest (BWD) are working together to find extraordinary birding experiences in North America. This is a continuation of Swarovski Optik's long-running and popular "Birder of the Year" contest, but this version has a twist. To entice you to share your extraordinary birding experience, Swarovski Optik is offering a fabulous prize: an all-expenses-paid birding trip to Costa Rica and new optics from Swarovski Optik for the grand-prize-winning entry!
It's your most memorable, most exciting, most amazing, most birdy, most enriching, most unusual, and/or your most fun bird-watching experience. It's the one you always tell your bird-watching friends about.
Simply fill out the simple form, including your short (750 words or less) account of your most extraordinary birding experience. You can also send your name, address, phone number, and essay by regular mail to Birder of the Year, c/o BWD, PO Box 110, Marietta, OH 45750. No purchase is necessary.
Extraordinary experiences call for extraordinary optics, and that's where our friends from Swarovski Optik come in. So, what are you waiting for? Share your extraordinary birding experience with us and you just might be invited along for some extraordinary birding in Costa Rica with Swarovski Optik!
