Signs of Spring!
Spring is almost here!
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.
