Nancy Drew 2011 Convention Clues #1

Calling all Nancy Drew Fans!

We're blogging about the 2011 Nancy Drew Convention in Charlottesville, VA leading up to the event, March 30-April 3. If you want to join us, visit our Nancy Drew Sleuths website for more details on how to register-deadline is Feb. 1, 2011:

I probably don't have to point out that our theme book, #34 The Hidden Window Mystery, has a little something to do with peacocks ;-)

Like this cutie! So gorgeous, isn't he. Of course the males are the ones that are so dandy and colorful. Nancy Drew encounters a few of these birds while sleuthing in Charlottesville, Virginia.

She even finds one late at night with its fan spread wide running around the grounds of spooky Ivy Hall--as depicted on the cover of the original cover shown above.

Did you know? Peacocks come in a very gorgeous white version? They're not albinos. They're a variant of one species of peacock. I'm learning all sorts of interesting tidbits about peacocks in planning and preparing for the convention! And I'll be sharing some of those fun facts with you from time to time as we get closer to the convention!
