Bird Madness: Feathered Four #2

The first Feathered Four round was a tight match, but the American kestrel eked out a victory in the end. Help decide which photo it goes up against: the floating chickadee or the cardinal in flight. Which do you like best?

Each round of the Soaring Sixteen, we posted two entries from this year’s Audubon Magazine Photo Awards. (Check out our official winners, announced recently, if you haven’t seen them yet.)

Those winners went head to head in our Egret Eight round. The top quartet makes it to the Feathered Four, then two onto the championship match.

More than 2,200 votes have so far helped us choose the winners of our Soaring Sixteen and Egret Eight rounds. The ultimate victor of Bird Madness will appear on our website, along with a story about how he or she captured the shot. Vote here! Voting closes on Sun., Jan. 13. Next week, we crown our People’s Choice Bird Madness winner!
