LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Nebraskans can show off their bird-watching skills in a statewide competition in May, officials announced Monday.

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, partnered with the Audubon Great Plains and the Wild Bird Habitat Store, is hosting the competition.

Officials say the Nebraska Birding Bowl will give opportunities to bird-watchers of all skill levels to compete for prizes.

Contestants can win a $1,000 cash prize, a pair of Vortex binoculars, or bird feeders, according to a press release.

Game and Parks says bird-watchers can register for the competition, which takes place during Nebraska Bird Month, through May 31.

For the competition, contestants will use eBird, a web-based platform used to track bird observations.
