Celebrate Urban Birds
Funky Nests in Funky Places / Nidos Chiflados 2016
12 Winners
July 1, 2016
You find them in hanging flower baskets… an old boot… a garage shelf… or under a bridge… birds build nests in the strangest places! For the Funky Nests in Funky Places challenge, we want you to take photos, paint or write stories showing a bird’s nest built in some out-of-the-way or out-of-this-world place. When observing nests please be sure to avoid touching them or disturbing the birds.

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!
