Photo Contest - Bird Interactions - WINNERS

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 1, 2013, 8:04 AM

Photo Contest - Bird Interactions


Birds can interact with each other in many ways. Interactions can range from cute (cuddling, allopreening) to gross (regurgitating food for babies, pooping on a common enemy) to violent (fighting, hunting) to romantic (courtship displays, mating).


And now, without further ado, here are the WINNERS of the photo contest!

It's a shame how many get disqualified because people don't vote. There were some really good ones that wound up so.

2nd place? Well, that was unexpected. Thanks everyone who voted for me!

Also, I don't think this journal or the voting notifications showed up in my feed, and I do have the 'journal' option clicked in my watch. If this happened to other people, it could example why there are so many disqualified entries.

dq stands for disqualified - everyone who got that did not vote in the contest, which was one of our rules.

Now only if video counter....I have video of griffon vultures mating (they're noisy) And the video is a bit more interesting than the pictures since there's a bunch of branches in the way.
I'm reallllllly hoping for baby vultures!
