Bird of the Month Photo Contest

Click here for rules and how to enter

The information in each essay for each photograph was written by Juanita N. Baker after reading The Cornell University Laboratory scientifically based articles on each bird species by subscribing to their service, The Birds of North America (BNA), http://americanornithology.org/content/birds-north-america-online. The BNA series was produced as a collaborative effort of the American Ornithology Union, Cornell Lab of Ornithology, and Academy of Natural Sciences. Much credit goes to each of the authors and many scientists who contributed the articles, have done the research and published the references. Please subscribe to the The Birds of North America if you want more in depth information on any of the bird species.

The Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology’s All About Birds has a great website to learn more about birds of North America and has marvelous videos. You also learn much basic data on every bird along with calls and a map of location, see their website: https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/browse_tax.aspx
