Bird-Photography and Birds-Club proudly presents some of the best submissions from the month of February, chosen by me, mydigitalmind. At the end of every month, I will go through submissions from both groups and choose the ones that stand to feature them in a News Article. I will also choose features from some of our special events that run during the month.

Special Features

Bird-Photography's Featured Photos
Every week, the admins from Bird-Photography pick a photo out of the previous week's submissions that will be featured on our front page for the entire week. The following photos were featured in February.

Birds-Club Bird of the Month
Each month, Birds-Club devotes a journal feature to a particular bird species. Members are welcome to submit as many deviations as they want with no pre-judging as long as they are photos or art of the featured bird. February's Bird of the Month was the Cuckoo. Below is a sampling of some of the deviations that stand out. To see the entire feature, please visit this blog.

Birds-Club Themed Week
For one week of each month, #Birds-Club holds a themed week where we vote on a certain themed deviation before we move along with our normal queue. February's theme was Focus on Feathers. To see the month's themed week journal, please visit this blog.
