We Have A Winner: Great Blue Heron Story Retitled

After a week of collecting creative suggestions, our cracker jack panel of esteemed voters has selected a winner in the contest to retitle our "Great Blue Whitewashes BirdFellow Headquarters" offering. We wish to thank all those who commented on this piece and shared it with friends and family. Obviously a story like this has a mass appeal that goes beyond our typical audience.

More than half of the suggested headlines received votes from our panel of six judges, who were asked to rank their top five favorites. Points were awarded based on these rankings, with five points for each first place vote, four for each second place vote, and so on down to one point for a fifth place vote. Though voting was close, three headlines received widespread support from the judges and outpaced the other entries. The following headlines were the top three vote-getters:

1. Irate Heron Demanding Equal Press Tries Smear Tactics -- Doug Schonewald

2. Official City Bird Pays Its Respects -- Lew Ulrey

3. Ardea herodias hideous -- Judie Hansen

The story will now be retitled using Doug's headline and all three of these winners will receive BirdFellow wearables. Who know's when we will have another event like this one that warrants a headline contest, perhaps never. But we enjoy having our readership comment on what we publish. It's apparent that bathroom humor is a sure-fire way to get you to interact with us. Thanks again to all of you who played along.
