From the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s NestWatch eNewsletter, September 2017:
Home Tweet Home Winners
In July we hosted our 4th annual Home Tweet Home photo contest. With great prizes on the line, including Zeiss binoculars and an exclusive artist-signed Eggs of North America print, we received over 630 entries! Narrowing down the winners was hard; luckily more than 1,300 people helped by wading through the contest gallery and voting for their favorites. Without further ado, your winners are:
Anna’s Hummingbirds by Soo Baus: People’s Choice & Cutest Baby category
Northern Cardinals by Kim Caruso: Judges’ Choice & Eyewitness category [see top of blog post]
Northern Mockingbirds by Melanie Furr: Nests and Eggs category
Tree Swallows by John Olson: Feeding Time category
The judges also selected 15 Honorable Mentions that stood out as exceptional submissions. See the gallery of honorees here. Thanks to everyone who participated! We appreciate your gorgeous photos, kind comments, and discerning votes.
