The top quartet will make it to the Feathered Four, then two on to the championship match. The swan cygnet won the last first-round head-to-head.
For those of you just joining our game, each round we’ve posted two entries from this year’s Audubon Magazine Photo Awards, in anticipation of announcing our official winners—it’s coming soon!—selected by our design director, Kevin Fisher, our photo editor, Lila Garnett, and publisher and editor-in-chief of Nature’s Best Photography magazine, Steve Freligh.
The ultimate victor of Bird Madness will appear on Audubonmagazine.org, along with a story about how he or she captured the shot. Our Jan-Feb 2013 issue will feature the awards’ official winners.
Vote here! Voting for the first round of Egret Eight closes mid-day Thursday, Dec. 20. The next round starts Thursday evening.
