Northern Cardinal by Anita Bhala

See all the 2020-21 winners!

Category 2: People's Choice

Grand Prize Winner

Jelly Squabble!!

Pam Garcia

Mansfield, LA, USA

These 3 seemed to be squabbling over the food and if you look very closely right under the blue jay you will see a cardinal peeping!!

Category 6: People's Choice

Second Place Winner

Close Encounter

Deborah Yaworsky

Olean, NY, USA

Cardinals and snow are made for each other. It always seems that while they spend the warm months fiercely chasing each other off the other’s territory, the sheer numbers of them at the Winter feeders make for more peaceful coexistence. They decorate the trees like Christmas ornaments and while they wait their turn, like this female, the opportunities for picture taking multiply.

Category 8: People's Choice

Third Place Winner

Anna’s Hummingbird

Robert Hechler

Vancouver, BC, Canada

Photographed during a study break at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC. I find birding to be an excellent way to clear my mind of any stresses brought on by school.

Category 8: Judges' Choice

Painted Bunting Out of Range

Andrew Mills

Potomac, MD, USA

This Painted Bunting strayed from his usual winter grounds and found his way up to Washington D.C., becoming a local celebrity and drawing bird watchers from around the region. He was pretty reliably seen foraging on certain areas of the tow path and nearby trails. This photo was taken in a light snow at the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, Great Falls National Park in Maryland on the morning of Inauguration Day, 2021. It took about four hours for him to get comfortable and close enough to get this image, but I’m glad I stayed for this once-in-a-lifetime sighting.

Category 7: People's Choice

A snowflake with your seed?

gregory cruthis

Decatur, IL, USA

Subzero temps so we try to keep enough seed out to help feed our cardinals. This guy didn’t seem to mind a snowflake with his seed.

Category 7: Judges' Choice

White-Throated Sparrow Twirl

Nikki Buchalski

East Brunswick, NJ, USA

While I have many favorite feeder birds, I always look forward to seeing a beautiful winter visitor in New Jersey, the White-Throated Sparrow.

Category 6: Judges' Choice

Eastern Bluebird

Larry Keller

Lititz, PA, USA

Category 5: Judges' Choice


Anita Bhala

Pennington, NJ, USA

I put some greenery and berries on the deck as a decorative touch… A surprise visitor showed up and started eating my berries!

Category 5: People's Choice

Tea Party in the Sun

Karen Burke

Enfield, CT, USA

When I set up this Tea Party, I didn’t expect as squirrel and a bird to show up at the same time! Chickadees and red squirrels are very bold/brave.

Category 4: People's Choice

10 bluebirds at a heated birdbath in the winter

Judy Carlson

Spotsylvania, VA, USA

we have a heated birthdate on our deck and after winter snow storm bluebirds gathered for a drink

Category 3: People's Choice

The Dance

Tina Glidden

Benson, AZ, USA

This pair of House Finch appear to be dancing and are totally wrapped up in the moment. A once in a lifetime shot and completely unplanned

Category 2: Judges' Choice

Always room for one more.

John Freidenberg

Belleville, IL, USA

Category 1: People's Choice

This One’s Mine!!

Maureen Hills-Urbat

Cochrane, AB, Canada

I put peanuts in the stump for the birds and then sit and watch the fun. The Blue Jays are usually good at taking turns but there were a few squabbles and managed to catch this interaction between the two birds.

Category 1: Judges' Choice

Snowy Seeds

Diane Murray

Scarborough, Maine, USA

A titmouse stops for a snack on a snowy afternoon.
