Many folks have asked us for Talkin’ Birds “swag” —t-shirts, hats, tote bags, and so on. But we’ve hesitated because items like that sometimes end up in landfills. So we’re trying something different: the Talkin' Birds "Make Your Own Swag" Contest.
Instead of selling items with our logo, we’re giving away Talkin’ Birds iron-on patches for you to put on things you already use. For the contest, put one on a hat, a shirt, a jacket, or anything where an iron can be safely used (or you can sew it on)—then take a photo of yourself or a friend wearing it and email us the photo!
Every week for eight weeks, we’ll choose a favorite photo. We'll send out prizes such as bird books, field guides, and the amazing
Birdscapes pop-up bird song display book. Everyone who sends in a "Make Your Own Swag" photo will be eligible in the Grand Prize drawing for a
Celestron Hummingbird Micro Spotting Scope.
Want a patch? Want several? Email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll send you the patches right away!

It winters in Central America and northern South America and is seen over most of the eastern U.S. in spring and summer. Are you intrigued?
