Next Category — Category 3: Cardinals and Friends
Let's celebrate teachers and students who love birds! Three schools that are registered FeederWatch participants will be randomly selected to win BirdSpotter prizes. Learn how they use FeederWatch in their classrooms and get tips for making birds exciting and accessible for students of all ages!
Registered FeederWatchers can win BirdSpotter prizes by simply entering data and sharing their best tips, stories, and bird-watching memories. When participants submit bird counts, they will see a "Share your story" prompt and an "Enter to Win" button on their Count Summary page. Four different prompts will be advertised throughout the contest and winners will be randomly selected. Not a FeederWatcher? Join now!
