Bird Madness: Egret Eight #4
Welcome back and happy 2013! Hope the holidays were relaxing and fun. Now it’s back to Bird Madness…
Finally, you’ve seen the images our judges picked as the official winners of the 2012 Audubon Magazine Photo Awards. But the people’s choice pick is still up for grabs. Help us decide the last of the Feathered Four finalists now! Which do you like better?
The other three finalists are the roadrunner, the kestrel and the cardinal. Today we offer the final Egret Eight competition: Hanging Carolina chickadee versus sleeping mute swan cygnet, the winners of Soaring Sixteen rounds seven and eight, respectively.

Here’s how our game has worked until now. Each round of the Soaring Sixteen, we posted two entries from this year’s Audubon Magazine Photo Awards. Those winners went head to head in our Egret Eight round. The top quartet—including the winner of this matchup—makes it to the Feathered Four, then two onto the championship match.
An amazing number of you helped up choose the winners of our Soaring Sixteen and the first three Egret Eight rounds. The ultimate victor of Bird Madness will appear on our website, along with a story about how he or she captured the shot.
Vote here! Voting closes on Sun., Jan. 6. Next week, we’ll run the two Feathered Four matchups, starting Monday.
