BirdSpotter Photo Contest: Weeks 6, 7, and 8 Winners!

January 7, 2013

We got a little behind on posting our BirdSpotter photo contest winners on the FeederWatch blog with the recent holiday break, so we’re going to give you the last three weeks in one whirlwind post!

Week 6: Birds and Water

Debi Rabin of Phoenixville, PA snapped the winning photo for week 6, of a Bald Eagle snatching a fish out of the water.

Debi Rabin won Week 6 with this photo of a Bald Eagle at Conowingo Dam in MD.

Debi says:

The photo was taken at Conowingo Dam in Maryland.  Was a gorgeous day weather wise on November 21, 2011 and the eagles were plentiful.  They were fish diving, chasing and soaring everywhere, was hard to decide which eagle to follow then out of the corner of my eye I saw this guy put the talons out, head cocked looking down and then wham, I didn’t know I captured this particular shot until I got home to sort out my captures.

Week 7: The Unexpected

Holly VandenBrink took the winning photo for week 7 for week 6 with the theme “the unexpected”.

Holly VandenBrink caught this brief interaction between squirrel and Cooper's Hawk.

It seems that the shot was unexpected for everyone involved!  Holly says:

The hawk was on my fence, when through the camera viewer I could see the Squirrel come into sight, I couldn’t believe it.  They both went their own directions, no one was harmed  🙂

Week 8: Shades of Blue

Week 8’s winner came to us from Diane Marshman of New Milford, PA with this wondeful capture of an Indigo Bunting.  We can’t think of a much better bird to win a week with the theme of “shades of blue!”

This Indigo Bunting photo by Diane Marshman won week 8 of the BirdSpotter photo contest.

    All of these photos are super! I have submitted a few over the weeks but when I see the talent of fellow birdwatchers, I have no chance to win. it is fun, anyway.
