    Eurovision for the Birds

    Birds have been singing. People have been listening. For thousands of years. Now we want you to record your favourite birdsong in Ireland and email  Classic Drive your MP3 (max 10MB) before Wednesday 6th May. 

    We'll then pick the best recordings and send them to the Eurovision Birdsong Contest. The basic condition for all entries is that they must be your self-made recording, your self-selected find, your self-defined confrontation with the phenomenon of bird calls and birdsong. On 23 May, the day of the Eurovision Song Contest, Radio Oe1 in Austria will present recordings of birds made by radio listeners all over Europe.

    The best contribution will win  a high-quality pair of binoculars worth €1000 provided by Swarovski Optik, So get listening and recording and send us your birdsong. Listen to our sample from West Cork, recorded last year.
