Celebrate Urban Birds Contest

Cornell Lab of Ornithology has started the Celebrate Urban Birds website.

They want to see your photo, drawing, or video of a Little Green Space that's good for birds (remember the bald eagle nest that's in a Minneapolis neighborhood across from the airport?). Have you noticed a spot that birds like because it provides shelter, food, or water? It could be an ivy-covered wall, flowers next to the stoop, a windowbox, a container garden on a rooftop or balcony, your school garden, or the potted plants by your library entryway.

Send a photo, drawing, or link to your video to urbanbirds@cornell.edu . They'll send the first fifty entries a copy of the new "Celebrate Little Green Places" poster and there will be other great prizes, including a $100 gift certificate from Johnny's Selected Seeds.The deadline is October 31. For more information, visit the Little Green Places contest site.
