Contests

What makes KingBirder different is that our contests follow themes, and all photos must be taken and submitted within the contest's date window.

Everybody Duck! - Submit Photos Here

Mellow Yellow

Contest opens on May 1, 2020 and closes on June 30, 2020.

Many tropical birds display some amount of yellow in their plumage. In the northern hemisphere, many residents and spring migrants also possess some yellow features. Eligible birds in this contest must have some yellow feathers somewhere on their bodies. Hope you find a "mellow" vibe for this contest!


It's a Shore Thing!

Millions of shorebirds are on the move all over the globe during the months of August and September. This contest theme celebrates shorebirds. What is a shorebird?

Are you "shore" you can find the right bird?
