HUGE Birdorable Bonanza 2013 starts TOMORROW!

Bonanza-2013_tiny-logo Summer is here, and that means that it's time for another Birdorable Bonanza! Our first Bonanza was in 2009, when we introduced 17 new birds, leading up to #200, the Dodo. In 2010 we added 18 birds, finishing with the Secretary Bird. In 2011 we added 19 birds and finished with Birdorable #350, the Carolina Parakeet. And last year we revealed 22 new species, ending with our 400th Birdorable, the Eurasian Eagle-Owl. That brings us to this year. For 2013, we're going big - REALLY BIG - and adding a new bird every day in July until we reveal our 500th species on July 31st! Whew, that's a lot of birds! Tomorrow kicks off with our first bird, a large, distinctive species found in sub-Saharan Africa. Can you guess what it will be?
