Often a bird is heard before he is seen. An important skill for any birder is the ability to identify birds by their unique call. Test your skill with our bird call quiz.
Our Second Annual Free Bird Photo Contest!
For National Bird Day 2013 we hatched another Free Bird Photo Contest! The winning photograph of house sparrows was taken by Jenn Fraleigh of Forked River, NJ. She received a bird feeder and organic T-shirt from the Born Free USA online store, a copy of a bird-centric board game and other prizes.
We were very excited to partner in the contest with Outset Media, which provided as first- through fifth-place prizes "What Bird Am I?"® Outset's website describes it as "a table top game designed for birders to test their species identification skills! With three levels of difficulty, 'What Bird Am I?' is perfect for novice and intermediate birdwatchers, as well as truly serious birders. The game has 300 spectacular photographs of birds from across continental United States and Canada. And it was proudly Made in the USA!"
We received about 200 entries in the latest contest and appreciated every one of them. Please stay tuned for our third annual Free Bird Photo Contest in late 2013, and keep enjoying our feathered friends!
