A bird a day, the blues away! Seriously, no need to be a confirmed birdwatcher nor even a bird buff to enjoy this calendar ; just to love nature a bit is enough. The photographs are gorgeous and for every bird you get the Latin name on top of the English one (quite precious when you want to find its name in another language as well). I somewhat miss the short comments that used to come with every picture on previous Audubon calendars, but the cards of this one are of a much higher quality, they can be kept (and will be) when the year will have passed. So, sincere thanks, Audubon Society!
(On top of that, these birds flew mightily fast: despite a late late order, they were in my French mailbox right before the New Year.)

I give these as Christmas gifts to my staff. The first year I gave these calendars as a gift (2007), they said this is what they wanted every year! We love the calendars (I gift one to myself!). Between us we have the Birds, Dog, Cat, and Island calendars. We look at each new picture every day. Some days they remind us of our own pets, or we laugh at the antics!

For years, I would purchase the Audubon page-a-day bird calendar. Each morning I would sleepily pad out to the kitchen and eagerly tear off yesterday's page, revealing "that day's" bird. When this calendar stopped being made for a few years, I was very sad. I bought the Sibley calendar, but it was sorely lacking. I have been a birder for 14 years, and I LOVE Sibley artwork for a field guide, but what fun is a page-a-day calendar when it goes in taxonomic order, and therefore you know what sort of birds you'll be seeing each day, and that for a week straight you'll either have loons or grebes???

Thus, I was quite excited when this one came out again. Two smallish issues I have with it:

1.) I love the fact that the publisher is saving paper by making the calendar double-sided, but I do miss the scratch paper that was on the back of each day in the "old" version. I loved using the flip page of bird species to write recipes on. Still, I think that this is better, overall, to have the calendar double-sided, so as to reduce waste and paper.

2.) I really do wish, however, that this version of the calendar had the little blurb about whatever species was featured that day. It was simple, just a few sentences, such as, "Common Pauraques are found throughout central America, and their nocturnal nature is bla bla bla" I don't know why they stopped putting this informative blurb on the calendar.

Overall though, I like it and am glad it's back.

This is a great calendar for a bird-lover or nature-lover.

The holder is sturdy clear plastic. Each day you take the current page and put it to the back of the stack. In the middle of the year, you flip the pages over and the remainder of the year is on the back of the pages. It's a nice concept to save paper and not make the calendar overly thick.

The photos in this calendar are beautifully done. They are clear and really focus in on the bird. The photo takes up the majority of the page. That leaves a small section on top of the page to largely display the day, day of week, month and year and then to the right the bird species (English and Latin) and the publishing company name.

It would have been nice to have a bit of detail on the particular bird, such as range, size, etc. Any that you're interested in learning more about, you need to search elsewhere.
