We sometimes whistle to entertain ourselves, in song, to get the attention of others, and even to attract birds. The 3rd Whistle Like A Bird Contest will provide persons who are skilled in imitating the songs and calls of Dominican birds with another opportunity to come up against each other in a friendly, competitive setting.
This year’s contest will be staged at the Alliance Francaise Auditorium, on Thursday 19th May 2011 from 10:00 a.m., as part of the 2011 Caribbean Endemic Birds Festival. The event is being organised by the Forestry, Wildlife & Parks Division of the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry.
Six contestants will be called upon to imitate three Dominican birds of their choice. Jubinot Honoré of Dublanc, the winner of the 2010 competition, will come up against the 2009 winner Christine Luke of Pont Cassé for the first time, and one new contestant, Marcus Benjamin of Roseau. The other participants in the contest are Vigile Laurent of Goodwill, and Edison St. Jean and Jefferson Warrington of Warner.
The winner will receive a cash prize and a night for two compliments Castle Comfort Lodge.
