Winners in the 18th annual photo contest
If you view the set as a slideshow, you'll miss the captions that identify the bird and the photographer. If you want those details, it's best to click through the set and view each image individually.
You might notice that only 10 photographs appear rather than 16 images. You won't find the grand-prize photo or the first-place winners in the five categories here. They appear only in the September/October issue.
The rules and prizes for the 19th annual contest will appear in the March/April 2007 issue. In the meantime, consider the tips that accompany these outtakes as well as these suggestions.
