Congratulations to Christine McKinney Ray and Natalie Waters for being our winners of the two amazing bird feeders for National Bird Feeding Month.*

Christine McKinney Ray’s picture was voted best among the four finalists. She is the winner of the Birds Choice Classic Bird Feeder with Built-In Squirrel Baffle and Pole. Natalie Waters was selected randomly among all entries as our second prize winner. She receives a Birds Choice Cedar 17″ x 14″ Open Platform Bird Feeder. Here is the great picture she submitted of a lovely house wren.

There were 112 entries with more than 100 of you submitting amazing pictures of birds you love. Although we can’t give away prizes to everyone, we thank you very much for your participation and enthusiasm.

It’s birders and enthusiasts like you that make this such a great community to be a part of.

*Christine and Natalie, please send an email with your address to and we’ll ship you your prize right away.

  1. I am so happy to win and cannot wait to receive my new birdfeeder. I love birds. I love watching for new visitors and photographing them. It’s a hobby, not a profession and it gives me pleasure as someone who is home-bound a lot due to illness. Thank you, Backyard Chirper! You and all the voters really made my day (week, month!!)

  2. Congratulations Christine, Natalie, and all the happy guests who will visit your feeders!

  3. Congrats to you both……………………..

  4. Thank you sooo much! I am so happy and excited to be chosen and to receive the awesome bird feeder and I am sure my feathered friends will be very grateful also! Thank you Backyard Chirper and all those who enjoyed my photo! 😀
