6,400 Photos - 2,420 Species - 140 Great Photographers!!

Thanks to all of you who contributed to make the contest a great success and to help us deliver a great new app. BirdsEye will now be able to display photos for 2,404 of the roughly 10,000 living species of birds in the world! We now can provide almost complete coverage for North America and Australia and over 75% for Japan!

We have a lot of gaps to fill in the rest of the world, so our challenge for the rest of the year is to build up Africa, SE Asia and South America.

Contest Rules

Additional Photo Submissions

Several people have asked and the answer is Yes!  We are still accepting photos at our Photo Submission page, although they will not count for the contest.  However, we will include all submissions in our next contest and the offer of a free app for everyone who submits a photo still stands!   We are especially interested in receiving photos from South America, Asia, Africa and Europe.  For a list of species still missing, please down-load the Photosneeded file from Dropbox.
