> For those who could have a problem in understanding the French text on the

> bird and I will like very much to receive me your answer (for sure, you
can

> DÉFI 24 (translation of the website text) :

Montréal.

>
> Send your answer not later than November 5 to Michel  Bertrand, 900 rue

> Three one year subscriptions to the magazine QuébecOiseaux (or a

> Maritimes" which will be also drawn among the people who will answer
