2021 Birds in Flight contest honorable mentions

A few days ago, we revealed the finalists in our 2021 Birds in Flight photo contest, and now the winners have been announced as well (see links below). We also want to share several more entries to this contest that we really liked: the 16 honorable mention images. Thanks to everyone who submitted more than 825 bird photos to this contest! It was a very challenging contest to judge. 

You can flip through the honorable mentions here:
