Very quick post this morning .... BC wants to congratulate the winners of the 2014 National Junior Duck Stamp Contest. (Full information about the program from the US Fish and Wildlife Service here).
This winning painting, an acrylic rendering of a King Eider, was done by Si youn Kim, 16, of Tenafly, New Jersey.
We also like the winning conservation message, by Max Cheng, 15, of Freemont, California:
Trumpeter Swan and cygnets, Andrew Kneeland, Rock Springs, Wyoming
