Vote for a BirdSpotter Winner!

From Feb. 18th to Midnight on Feb. 22nd, head on over to Project FeederWatch’s BirdSpotter photo contest to vote in the grand prize showdown! For the last fifteen weeks, BirdSpotter has had weekly themed contests with two winners: one People’s Choice winner and one Judges’ Choice winner. Right now, those 30 weekly winners are battling for the grand prize over at http://feederwatch.org/birdspotter2014/, and they need your votes! During the week you get one vote for each photo, and you can vote for as many of your favorites as you wish.

The grand prize winner will receive Vanguard binoculars and scope as well as prizes from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology! Second and third place winners will also receive sweet prizes from Vanguard and the Cornell Lab.

Below are some great photos that didn’t make it into the final voting showdown. Imagine how great the photos up for vote are when these are so fantastic!
