In the second Feathered Four round, the chickadee took the victory with 74% of the votes. For the title, that image goes up again the American kestrel (winner of Feathered Four round 1). You have until Thursday to pick your favorite. The ultimate victor of Bird Madness will appear on our website, along with a story about how he or she captured the amazing shot.
