November 2021 Coloring Contest!

Our 2021 contest has ended, and we thank all the artists for sending in their masterpieces. All entries that were received by November 30 will be judged according to age groups.
Judges will be looking for skill, creativity, use of color, or additions to the background. The winning entries will be posted here as soon as judging is completed. We look forward to your entry in the November 2022 contest!

There is good news – all the coloring pages of our featured birds are still available to download! Because the contest has ended for this year, please do not send the entries to us. Have a neighborhood contest with your friends. Look in your backyards for birds and learn to identify them – by color, size, song, or behavior. Learn more about our local birds in the Willamette Valley at The Cornell Lab’s All About Birds website (www.allaboutbirds.org).
