The "So Long Summer Birds!" contest theme was a popular one, and eight talented photographers submitted a wide range of spectacular summer species for consideration. In the end, our three finalists all had gorgeous photos and highlighted very seasonal bird species in beautiful ways. From a total of 19 entries, I'm happy to offer congratulations to each of these worthy finalists...
- debk - Summer Hummer
- Kate - Contemplative Caspian
- LARogers - Colorful Dickcissel
