2007 WildBird photo contest

The September/October issue of the magazine showcases the 16 winning images from the annual photo competition. Here's one and another one.

And here's one of my favorites. Don Blais of East Greenbush, N.Y., captured this female Northern Cardinal at his backyard feeder as she looked toward the ruckus created by an American Tree Sparrow and a Dark-eyed Junco. I get such a kick out of her body language.

As his prize, Don will receive a Droll Yankee Sunflower Domed Cage feeder. Other prizes in the five categories include binoculars and spotting scopes, while the grand prize is a Canon EOS 30D digital camera.

The female Northern Cardinal looks so beautiful and perfect in this picture. It's weird; people usually find the bright red males more attractive but in this picture, I am strangely drawn to the female cardinal.
