Ok finally...here are the proper critters for this cozy home, Squirrels!

The prize is for the unstained wood squirrel house. You can leave it unfinished or stain it. I used a water based stain and beeswax on one house, and left the other house unstained. DH sweated his sweet little ole buns off last week building another squirrel house for our photo contest, so it's all ready to be packed up and sent to some lucky winner.

You men don't think out of the box!!! She buys one of these and stuffs the whole kit and kaboodle inside then ships to me, Aluminum Dog Crates, Metal Dog Crates, McKee Crates. That's that! I get the coon and the combo squirrel feeder and house. You really gotta start getting creative!!! All I'd need to do is convince everyone not to enter any photos in the month that shows up so I can win!!!

You should enter your first bear picture in the contest. It's adorable.

LOL!

tineck-
Shipping is covered by me of course (minus the bears and racoon), my way of donating to our wonderful cause, and the members who make WildlifeGardeners such a great forum!

E-
I'm not sure Mr. Coon is too keen about being shipped cross country in a box. He mentioned something about flying first class instead.

All Members-
Anyone desiring a squirrel house/feeder can bid on this one. Yes, we made a second squirrel house/feeder to auction off!!!

All proceeds to be donated to the WildlifeGardeners Forum. Oh, and did I mention free shipping!!

Okay I guess it is time that I make it official. I am, in fact, the new WG Contest Coordinator. I know this because I am no longer evolving and I have a title. Not as cool as The Bug Whisperer, but a title nonetheless.

So, as my first official act as WG Contest Coordinator, I want to thank everyone that has offered prizes for our prize vault. I believe that the winner of the August POTM will receive the honey so graciously offered by MrILoveTheAnts.

I will do my best to follow up on everything but if something slips through the cracks please do not hesitate to let me know by PM or smoke signal or carrier pigeon. If anyone wants my personal email just ask.

Again, thanks for helping us keep this really cool contest going with prizes that you have offered!
