Home Tweet Home Returns July 5

Get ready to say, “Aww!” Our annual photo contest Home Tweet Home returns on July 5, and runs throughout the month. We cannot wait to see all those glossy eggs, fluffy babies, and attentive parents. This year’s contest features the categories: Cutest Baby, Nests & Eggs, Feeding Time, and Eyewitness.

We introduced the Eyewitness category in 2016 and were amazed at the interesting behaviors and insightful observations that were submitted to the contest. Submissions to this category are encouraged to tell a story, or highlight a seldom-seen aspect of nesting biology (this includes trail cam or nest box cam photos, too).

Review our photographer’s guidelines, grab your camera, and get out there! As in years past, great prizes will be handed out to winners of each category.

The contest opens July 5; watch our website for contest entry instructions and official rules.
