Bird blog & online contests for August

Posted on August 3rd, 2009 in Contest

I’m going to continue to keep track of the bird- or birder-themed online contests & giveaways I find, but I think it’s a bit much for a weekly post. I’m going to try and post a list on the first Monday of the month. As before, I will add any updates I find during the month as a comment on this post. If you’d like to stay updated, you can subscribe to the comment RSS feed for this post.

Here’s a list of current blog & online contests by birders, for birders, and/or offering birdy prizes. Click on the links to learn more, check eligibility, and enter to win! If you are running a contest or know of something that should be added to this list, please let me know by leaving a comment or sending me an email.
