BirdsEye photo contest details

Screen Shot 2013-03-26 at 6.45.48 PMWe here at Nemesis Bird are huge fans of the BirdsEye and BirdLog apps. We were big users of eBird before those two apps came around, but having easy access to eBird sightings in the field, and the ability to enter eBird checklists from a phone were really game changers in how we bird. And so now I am very excited to hear that they are working on a major upgrade of BirdsEye.

In this new version, they are going to need a ton of new photos to add in to the app, so they are running a contest where each photo you submit will give you an entry to win prizes, including 2 great binoculars from Eagle Optics. The contest is running from 3/25/2013 until 4/26/2013. This is a great chance to put some of your photography in front of a lot of people, and help out with a really cool app.

As a bonus, everyone who contributes at least one new photo that they end up using in the app will get a free copy of the new worldwide BirdsEye Lite app (iPhone only at this point, but will be available for Android later this year).

As a bonus from Nemesis Bird, let us know in the comments if you submitted any of your photos to the contest and we will send you a free code to download Bird Codes for iPad and iPhone.

Drew is the founder and editor of Nemesis Bird and now works to curate some of the best content the web has to offer on birding and ornithology from an energetic crew of ornithologists, field researchers, tour leaders and photographers. Drew is originally from PA but now lives in central New York where he is enjoying the long and snowy winters. He has done various bird jobs including bird surveys for the 2nd PA Breeding Bird Atlas, tracked saw-whet owls from dusk to dawn with Scott Weidensaul and counted hawks for several years for Hawk Mountain Sanctuary. His master's research at Penn State University focused on grassland birds and their relationships with different agricultural practices. Drew is an avid lister, especially on smaller scales, and enjoys adding new birds to county, state and life lists. A sucker for competitions, he has placed 2nd in the World Series of Birding (with Nemesis Birders Andy McGann and Mike Lanzone) and is the part of the winning team for the Onondaga Audubon Bird-a-thon in Central NY and the Shaver's Creek Birding Cup (2 years running with Nemesis Birder Alex Lamoreaux). He also enjoys digiscoping and making apps for birders. He is project manager for the North American Rare Bird Alert and coordinates the development of BirdsEye and BirdsEye Hotspots. Some topics that really interest him are migration, bird distributions and vagrancy.

  • Sent a few pics to the BirdsEye contest. Still have a few more to send…

  • When I’m done, I’ll have over 200 submitted. Any chance on getting an Android app for Bird Codes (I don’t have an iPhone/iPad)?

      I’d love to provide you with an Android version but it simply doesn’t exist. No plans at this time to make one either. If you ever get an iPhone let me know and I will send a code your way! Cheers and thanks for submitting so many photos!
