Winter birds' Survival Challenge

The Celebrate Urban Birds project at Cornell Lab of Ornithology wants to know how birds survive winter in your neighborhood and invites you to participate in the Survival Challenge. Your entries could garner you one of various prizes, such as a binocular, a birdfeeder, a birdsong calendar, a book or greeting cards.

Take a photo, create some artwork, shoot video, write a story or a poem, or create a sculpture. Get creative! Just show how birds get along in winter in your community. It could be a place, a behavior, a human-bird relationship, or anything you can spot!
