Here is a great opportunity to show off your birding skills – enter The Parade of Plumage Challenge. The National Museum of Wildlife Art, University of Wyoming Biodiversity Institute and the University of Wyoming Museum of Vertebrates are challenging you to identify the species depicted in Francois Nicolas Martinet’s 18th century engravings. Martinet illustrated the works of some of the great naturalists of his time, including Buffon, Ray and Brisson. More details, including a description of the fabulous prizes, can be found by visiting http://www.paradeofplumage.com/ The challenge ends on 31 December 2014.
