TBN Photo Challenge ​🦅

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

How about a photo challenge?  Whoever posts their photo of the subject first wins.  The one rule is that your photos must be taken after the subject(s) are posted.

The first challenge is to take a photo of a jay (any kind) perched on a powerline.

GO!

Oh, sorry. Didn't realize you don't have any where you live.  I'll try to make it so you'll be able to participate in the next one.

You don't have Common Night-Jays?? :classic_tongue:

Well there is my ex-brother-in-law, Jay.  We all would love to see him on a power line.

I don't think our Blue Jays really like them either.  Maybe I made this too hard...

@The Bird Nuts can we use old photos?

 

No, with each challenge, the photo must be new, taken after the challenge is issued.

Everyone waiting at the power lines with their cameras this morning? 😃  I won't be able to get outside until later - got two rambunctious puppies to deal with.

Those of us who still get to work are at a definite handicap!  :classic_sad:  Might I suggest starting the next challenge on a Saturday morning?

EDIT: Indeed, posting the challenge at 10 or 11 Eastern would take care of the Eastern earlier sunrise advantage.

Yes, HamRHead is correct.  I'm sorry my wording wasn't clear.

I tried to make it more difficult (I don't see Blue Jays on power lines every day). I doubt someone will complete the challenge within a day or even a week.

California Scrub Jay. Sorry the photo isn't better, but it's the best I could do within 5 minutes of reading this challenge!! 😁 Taken 11:10 this morning in Sacramento.
