Bird Madness: Matchup #2

UPDATE: And the winner is Eagles! Thanks to all who voted.

Great stuff on the first matchup! Thanks to all of you who clicked your pick. Surfing Birds earned the win, by just a few votes.

For our next head to head, it’s chicks against eagles (okay, okay, chick photo versus eagle photo). Either way, pick your favorite of the two, vote, then tell all your friends—virtual or otherwise. The winner of this matchup will go up against Surfing Birds sometime mid-December.

In case you missed the first matchup, here’s the deal: From now until the beginning of January 2012, we’ll be pitting some of the entries from this year’s Photo Awards (selected in no particular order) against one another for you to vote on. We’ll feature the winner on our website, along with an article about how she or he captured the shot.

In our Jan-Feb 2012 issue, we’ll feature the awards’ official winners, selected by our panel of judges.

Vote here! Voting for this matchup will close on Sunday, Nov. 27. The next round will take place on Monday, Nov. 28. Happy Thanksgiving! By the way, to see these images in a larger size and for more entries from Audubon Magazine’s 2011 Photo Awards, click here.
