thats right birdvoyer!!!  I need more than two weeks to get my stuff together etc.   Having said that, I just got an email from the producer...here goes....

"Dear marylee, So I have some sad news.  Unfortunately we have decided to go with another candidate for the program.  Everyone thought you were great and it was a very difficult decision.  I am sorry that there was such a long delay in letting you know but we had to consider many factors.  I wanted to thank you so much for sending me the video's.  your enthusiasm for eagles was truly contagious and I was happy to meet you over email."

 :ecsad :eccry

I'm still glad that I at least tried.  I came so close.  But we can't win them all.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support.  I am so happy that i have 'met' (so to speak)... all of you.  you are all such loving caring people.

Awww, Darn! You will have to report back to us when the show airs and we'll just make up our own minds whether their candidate was really better!!  :heart

So sorry terbobun!  now you need to come to chat and just be a full-time addict like the rest of us! I would have loved to try for this show but the rest of life prevented it.  Was hoping someone we knew - even a little - would be chosen!

terbobun, you gave the competition your best shot. They obviously were impressed with you and your presentation.  Yes, please do let us know when the program airs.

All the best to you and have fun on the chat with new found friends and of course Mom and Dad Hornby.

Well done  :ecsmile

Wanted to give another update. I was in the top 3 also and was not selected. Sure hoping we hear who they did select for this program. What a great opportunity this was, very fun and exciting. In my initial email to the producer, I told about the Hornby eagle nest, history of the cam and how Phoenix gave us all an amazing legacy. What an amazing group of eagle enthusiasts we have! I am sure whoever they chose will be just perfect and fit with their intention for the program.

Congrats to Flood and terbobun for being in the top three.  :flower

You both would have been great. No wonder they had a difficult time with their selection. Sure am curious about their final choice. It is exciting, and I hope their episode will be fantastic.

Let us know when it will air if you hear any dates.

Big ((( hugs ))) to you both for putting yourself in the running.  :heart

 :clap     Oh My Flood, youn were also in the top 3 - Congratulations and I echo Passerine's thoughts-must be something better out there for the two of you in the future!

BUT...wouldn't they have done well by choosing either of you. Darn!   :gaah


I knew we had an exemplary group!
