Bird Photo Big Day Fall Challenge 2020

September 26, 2020 @ 12:00 am - September 27, 2020 @ 12:00 pm

| $25

Thank you for joining Kitty, Bill, and your fellow bird photographers in the Bird Photo Big Day Fall Challenge 2020. The event is part of SFBBO’s annual California Fall Challenge fundraiser. Winner of the “Strike a Pose” category will be immortalized on the 2020 SFBBO T-shirt, with credit to the photographer. For those that don’t know, these T-shirts quickly become collector’s items, sought after by many for years to come. The photo will be gently modified to line art and silk-screened on the shirt. The shirt is used as a fundraiser for SFBBO. 

All photos must be taken between 12:00 am and 11:59 pm on Saturday, September 26, 2020 and submitted to the Facebook group by noon on Sunday, September 27, 2020. Each participant can submit a total of 10 photographs for the contest. All submissions are to be posted on the Facebook group or emailed to Barbara Coll ( who will post them on the Facebook Group with credit to the photographer.

Prizes will be awarded on Monday, September 28, 2020 in five categories:

1. Best ‘Strike a Pose’

2. Best Behavior

3. Best Bird in Flight (BIF)

4. Funniest Photo

5. Biggest Surprise

A minimum donation of $25 is requested to participate. Donations of $60 or more are eligible to receive a 2020 SFBBO t-shirt. The value of the t-shirt ($10) is not tax deductible. Now more than ever we need to continue the important research into Bay Area bird behavior and habitat so we can protect what we have around us. We understand that circumstances may be difficult for some right now so we encourage those that can give to give generously. SFBBO is a 501(c)(3) and a tax-deductible receipt is provided for your donation.
