Home Tweet Home Winners

On August 4, NestWatch announced the winners of the Home Tweet Home photo contest which ran throughout July. With a total of 730 submissions, voters certainly had their work cut out for them. In the end, our judges selected the first and second place winners from among four category winners chosen by popular vote. Here they are:

  • Cutest Baby (First place winner): Piping Plover chick by Kim Caruso
  • Best Nest (Second place winner): White-eyed Vireo nest by Sheri Douse
  • Beautiful Eggs (Category Winner): Robin’s Eggs by Linda Bowers
  • Feeding Time (Category Winner): Brown Thrasher fledgling and parent by Elizabeth McWilliams

Judges also selected 17 Honorable Mentions that stood out as their favorites. See the gallery of honorees online. We thank everyone who submitted their best work, as well as voters who took time to vote for photos. It was a successful first contest, and we are already looking forward to next year.
