The Cornell Lab of Ornithologys Urban Birds project in Ithaca is hosting its annual Funky Nests in Funky Places contest.
If theres a funky nest in your neighborhood, we want to know about it, project leader Karen Purcell said in a news release. You can send in a photo or video, write a story, produce some artwork or a dance use any creative way you can think of to show or describe a birds nest in a funky place.
Entries may be submitted in categories such as cutest, funniest, funkiest or most inconvenient.
Many contest prizes are being offered. To learn more about how to participate, visit funkynests.org
The deadline for entries is July 1.
Celebrate Urban Birds is a free, year-round citizen-science project focused on birds in neighborhood settings.
