Cornell contest: A Murder of Crows & Other Spooky Bird Tales
Birds can be downright spooky sometimes. A European Starling flies at your head, thousands of crows roost in a downtown park, a pigeon takes over your balcony. With Halloween just a few weeks away, we want to see and hear spooky things about birds! We'll try to explain what's really going on with their puzzling behavior.You can download a flyer to encourage more participation. You'll find more details -- such as the terms of agreement and the many prizes including optics, books and CDs -- here.
Go outside and take a photo, do a painting, write a story or a poem, or even shoot a video showing crows, pigeons, starlings, an owl, or any kind of bird doing something strange.
Remember to send your entries via e-mail by Oct. 31. Good luck!
