March Migration Madness
 
For millions of bird watchers, March signals the return of the birds. They've spent the winter in Mexico or Argentina, they're sporting their full colors and they're hungry.

The Cornell Lab of Ornithology will celebrate this exciting birding time of year with its fourth annual March Migration Madness tournament. Get in on the action! Help us choose a colorful bird to represent the Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid. Go to the Cornell Lab's Facebook page to nominate your favorite; then stay tuned. The Tweet 16 will begin mid-March.

The Barkley family
Meet the Barkleys
 
Dogs have been driving Subaru vehicles for years. Now watch as the Barkley family of dogs portrays everyday relatable human experiences. The new commercials focus on situations we've gone through with our own families – teenagers dating, road trips, getting stuck in traffic, even getting lost in thought. When you meet the Barkleys, you can sit back and laugh at all of the silly and simple human behaviors, because the dogs are standing in for us.

YOUR LOVE STORIES

Bluebirds and the Outback
 
I want to let Subaru know about a flock of bluebirds that have an apparent obsession with our 2011 Subaru Outback! The birds began congregating on our car; on the driver's side, along the window frame and side mirror. They push each other out of the way, peck at the mirror and attack the reflected interlopers.
This 2011 Subaru Outback is for the birds!
Somewhere between six and 10 birds take turns at the window from dawn until the sun sets. When we drive off, the birds are waiting for our return. They take up their positions as soon as we go into the house and resume their belly busting.

They are similarly enamored of our daughter's Outback and show no interest whatsoever in any other visitors' cars, of whatever brand. They are fanatically loyal to Subaru.

INSIDER TIPS

Driving Tips for Senior Safety
 
Although growing older doesn't automatically make you a bad driver, advancing age does bring changes that can affect driving ability. If you're a senior driver concerned about road safety, consider these simple tips when you get behind the wheel.

Plan for the Journey Ahead
• Before you leave home, map out your route, especially in unfamiliar areas.
• Make sure your car is stocked with an emergency kit, cell phone and an extra pair of eyeglasses.
• Start thinking now about alternative modes of transportation. Practice taking a bus, a taxi or a local ride service. When the transition to the passenger seat finally arrives, you'll feel more comfortable with the options.

Give Yourself Routine Maintenance Checks
• Get regular vision tests and adjust eyeglasses and contact lenses as prescribed.
• Exercise your torso and neck to increase the flexibility needed to look over your shoulders before backing up and making lane changes.
• Consult a physician and pharmacist to ensure that prescribed and over-the-counter medications will not cause unexpected drowsiness or fatigue.

  Put the Brakes on Stressful Conditions
• Avoid rush-hour traffic.
• Don't drive at night, in fog, heavy rain or snowfall when visibility is limited.
• Use alternative modes of transportation or stay put when roads are slippery.
