Funky Nests in Funky Places 2017: challenge ends June 30!

Have you ever seen a bird nesting in a strange place? Birds make their homes in trees and bushes, but also in flowerpots, stoplights, and even old shoes.  Need inspiration for where to look? See the slideshow below for recent entries.

Check out our contest, Funky Nests in Funky Places, to read poems and stories, view photographs and videos, or upload your own material.  Everyone, no matter your age or community, is welcome to participate in the contest… help us fill in our map of funky nests!

It doesn’t matter if you are an experienced birder or a beginner.  Just learn how to safely and respectfully observe nests and you’ll be on your way to discovery. You could even win prizes, like a pair of binoculars, All About Birds fold-out field guides, bird feeders, posters, and many more.  We can’t wait to see your funky nest!
