Bird Photo Big Day Fall Challenge


The Bird Photo Big Day Fall Challenge to Benefit the San Francisco Bay Bird Observatory (SFBBO): Photograph bird behavior. We are looking for the best photos that depict bird behavior and activity; all species are in the game.

Eating, flycatching, preening, bathing, vocalizing, flying, soaring, and hunting. Even the bird's attitude. What behaviors can you capture?

Can you capture a Skimmer skimming? Or an American Dipper dipping? Maybe a Rail skulking?

All photos must be taken between 12:00 am and 11:59 pm on Saturday 9/26/2020 and submitted by noon on Sunday 9/27/2020. Each participant can submit a total of 10 photographs. All submissions are to be posted on the Facebook group or emailed (see registration page).

Prizes will be awarded on Monday night 9/28/2020 in five categories:

1. Best 'Strike a Pose'

2. Best Behavior

3. Best Bird in Flight (BIF)

4. Funniest Photo

5. Biggest Surprise

Winner of the "Strike a Pose" category will be immortalized on the 2020 SFBBO T-shirt, with credit to the photographer. For those that don't know, these T-shirts quickly become collector's items, sought after by many for years to come. The photo will be gently modified to line art and silk-screened on the shirt. The shirt is used as a fundraiser for SFBBO.

A minimum donation of $25 is requested to participate in this fundraiser. Donations of $60 or more are eligible to receive a 2020 SFBBO t-shirt. The value of the T-shirt ($10) is not tax deductible. Now more than ever we need to continue the important research into Bay Area bird behavior and habitat so we can protect what we have around us. We understand that circumstances may be difficult for some right now so we encourage those that can give to give generously. SFBBO is a 501(c)3 and a tax-deductible receipt is provided for your donation.
