Let's just say it's on!
Although this isn't an official
Utah Birders Competition (yet) I am challenging any takers to a friendly match of "photographic big year". The goal here is to take identifiable photos of as many species of birds in Utah in 2013 as you can.
They can be taken with a camera phone, a point and shoot, an SLR, a video camera, etc. It doesn't matter how you take them, as long as you can identify them.
We will use the Utah Birders Flickr Pool
as the official location of the contest. Create a SET
on your Flickr account called 2013 Utah Photo Big Year
, and upload your images there--1 photo of each species, what # of bird it was for the year, and when and where it was photographed. Then also make sure to add it to the Utah Birders Photo Pool
so we can see everyone who participates progress as the year goes on.
This is just for fun, but I will come up with some prizes for the winners--at least for 2nd and 3rd place since I don't want to give myself a prize :) Now that I have staked my claim, are there any takers?

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I went and created my new SET and added 32 pictures from 2.5 hours of birding this morning... Good Luck Everyone!
