The Year of the Bird banner works best on a landing page (including your home page). It will only work in a region that stretches the full width of the page, so do not attempt to add it to a region that has sidebars or does not span the full width of the page area.
1) On your home page or a landing page, click the "customize this page" button at the bottom
2) Select a full width region of your page (such as "Main") and click the plus sign to add a module to this region.
3) Select "Year of the Bird Banner" from the list of "Basic Modules"
4) Use the four-way arrows button to reposition the banner if needed.
