Wildlife Acoustics, creator of the Song Sleuth bird identification app, is running a contest where the winner will go birdwatching with David Sibley in May 2018.

logo-song-sleuth-sweepstakesThe “Song Sleuth with Sibley” competition presented with LLBean gives birdwatchers the unique opportunity to bird-watch with Sibley, the renowned artist and author of The Sibley Guide to Birds, The Sibley Guide to Trees, and other books. Sibley also writes the “ID Toolkit” column in each issue of Bird watching magazine.

The contest winner will receive air travel and hotel accommodations for two in Freeport, Maine for three nights, two birding outings and a meal with Sibley, a $1,000 shopping spree with a personal shopper at LLBean’s flagship store and two copies of the Song Sleuth app.

“Maine is one of my favorite places, for birding or otherwise,” said Sibley, who helped develop Song Sleuth. “I look forward to sharing the majesty of the area and my birding knowledge with the winner at the height of spring migration in the area.”

“We’re thrilled to team up with David and LLBean to give one lucky birder the opportunity to not only add to their life list, but cross one off their bucket list,” said Robert Gierschick, Director of Wildlife Acoustics marketing. “This is a chance to not just ‘verify your Sibley’, but actually verify with Sibley.”

The outings will take place during the LLBean Birding Festival, May 26-28, 2018. The festival includes several birding trips, presentations by birding experts, and other birding-related activities.

The draw coincides with the launch of Song Sleuth 2.0 in mid-February. Along with new features and the addition of other species, an Android version of Song Sleuth will also be introduced.
