3 winners in 4 categories
A committee of Lab staff will select winners based on many different criteria. Mainly we are looking for great stories in each of the four categories: funkiest, cutest, most inconvenient, and funniest. We are not looking for fabulous photography --but instead interesting stories of discovery.
So get your cameras out and shoot a photo that highlights birds nests in the strangest places!
Before you go out to look for nests, read these important guidelines:
Prizes include Celestron binoculars, Pennington bird feeders, Inside Birding DVDs, Diversity of Sounds CDs, Cornell Lab of Ornithology membership gift packets, Project FeederWatch posters, and much more.
We run this "challenge" as an educational component of our Celebrate Urban Birds project to encourage folks to get to know birds. We don't do it to get fabulous photos, but we do get wonderful photos and beautiful stories in the process. We use these photos for educational purposes.
The challenge attempts to get people outside watching the world around them; learning from others, discovering nature, and falling in love with birds!
Please, READ OFFICIAL RULES OF CONTEST BEFORE SUBMITTING A PHOTO.
