Celebrate spring by entering the latest Celebrate Urban Birds Challenge: Signs of Spring!. Take a walk outside and notice signs of spring: a robin with a beak full of worms or nesting material, a goldfinch becoming bright yellow again, birds returning from their winter migration, courting behavior, a spring song, a new nest, young birds learning to fly, and more.
The challenge begins February 15 and ends March 31.
Share your observations with us. Be creative! Take a photo, create a dance, do some artwork, shoot video, write a story or a poem, or create a sculpture. Just show or describe signs of spring. Youth of all ages are encouraged to participate!
Prizes include Pennington Bird feeders, Opticron binoculars, sound CDs, posters, books, bird-guides, and more.
We are teaming up with Walmart and Pennington® Wild Bird Food brand to distribute free Celebrate Birds kits to 2,500 teachers across the country through their brand new Adopt-A-School program. This kit provides a classroom with a bird feeder to put on their classroom window, as well as bird seed, kids’ binoculars, fun classroom activities, and the chance to win a mini-grant that will help the schools hold a Celebrate Birds event! Nominate your school via this simple form!
