BIRD HABITATS – FOR MEN ONLY:   Did you know? Currently, over 10,000 bird species inhabit the Earth. Their habitats range from the vast deserts of the Sahara, to polar ice caps, and from lush, green tropical rainforests, to our own backyards, rivers and bays. Equally, birds come to us in numerous shapes, colors and sizes that continue to amuse, delight and enrich our lives.

Entrants were to create their own interpretation of the perfect bird habitat. Space allotment is 5’ wide by 5’ long by 6’ high (maximum height). Area will be taped off for each entry. The use of tables, table cloths and floor coverings are optional. Cards of intent should be at least 8”x10” with print that can be easily read. No silk or artificial flowers. Living plant material may be altered as needed. As with all arrangements, daffodils must be featured.

Ray Friend of Gloucester received a blue for artistic distinction and dubbed "Mr. Philiadephia Flower Show by the judges.

Robert Johnson of Gloucester, also, received a blue for artistic distinction.
