Have you ever seen a bird build a nest in the most bizarre spot that defies all reason? Do you ever wonder why that bird chose YOUR drain pipe to raise their young? Can you identify bits of your “trash” that are now key architectural elements in the nest in your yard? If you have answered “YES!” to any of our questions, then YOU will want to enter our 1st annual Wacky Nest Quest Photo Contest! All you have to do is take a photo of your exquisite nest and submit it to the Connecticut Audubon Society by June 1, 2012. Please take care not to disturb any birds, their eggs, or nests in the process – we do not want to negatively impact birds during their sensitive breeding season. Winners will be selected in 2 main categories, children (up to age 12) and adults. Winning entries will receive special prizes at a reception this summer and be featured on our website. Please email your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org and type WNQ in the subject line or mail it to WNQ c/o Connecticut Audubon Society, 2325 Burr Street, Fairfield, CT 06824. All photos submitted must include your name, telephone number, address, the city and state location of the nest, and the date the photo was taken. Only 1 entry per person, please. $5 entry fee required; payable by cash, check or credit card. Please submit payment with mailed entries. CAS staff will call emailed entries to obtain payment.
