Get Funky!

Look inside an old boot, barbecue grill, or mailbox–or on a street sign, clothesline, or stoplight. Funky nests are everywhere! Take the “Funky Nests in Funky Places” challenge for a chance to win great prizes, including binoculars, bird feeders, and an iPad. Send your photo, story, video, song, poem, or art to the Cornell Lab’s Funky Nests contest beginning May 1.

Participate with your grandchildren, classroom, workplace, or on your own—just use any creative way you can think of to show or describe a bird’s nest in a funky place. Entries from all over the world are accepted! This year’s categories include: Funniest, Most Inconvenient, Funkiest, and Sweetest. Find out more.
