The new COG website is finally nearing completion. Amongst the outstanding items there’s a small but very visible item that needs a creative mind.


Looking at attached half of the draft home page, notice the grey box near the middle “Interested in becoming a member of COG?”.  The problem is how to choose those dot point words to sound coherent and interesting, with the following constraints:


- must be four lines i.e. two points of one line each and one point of two lines.

- the words should not run over the robin, so each line less than ~18 characters

- font size etc as shown.


All suggestions are welcomed, if no-one comes up with a better idea I’ll use my best efforts so far…


  • Birds will love you
  • Interesting activities
  • All your bird questions answered!


or maybe


  • Help birds survive
  • Learn heaps
  • Really interesting talks and trips


It’s not the most important thing in the world, but hopefully someone can do better than above!
