Long history of incredible photo submissions
While we will no longer be hosting an annual photo contest, we invite you to continue to submit pictures to us from your birding weekend. Bird photos and people photos will be uploaded separately. Read below to learn more.
Bird Photos From the Weekend
Upload your favorite bird images when you enter your Great Backyard Bird Count list in eBird. Your photo will become a part of the Macaulay Library, the world’s premier scientific archive of natural history.
Images for the Macaulay Library can be uploaded directly from your eBird/GBBC list. To learn how to upload an image to your bird list click on the box below.
People Photos From the Weekend
Please share with us pictures of yourself and your bird-watching community! We will use these pictures to continue to inspire others from around the world to watch and enjoy birds. All people who submit people photos will win one Bird Academy course!
