    Hello! First off, I want to say that Rio and I are REALLY sorry that this took so long. And, that everyone who entered is a winner.
    There will be a runner-up and winner in each category, then a Grand Waterfowl, who will receive our prizes. The original categories were Ducks, Geese, Wild Birds, Swans, and Other Waterfowl, but as we received nothing on Other and only one Swan, Other has been removed and only one placing is available in Swans.

    And now, without further ado, the WINNERS!

    Swans:
    Winner: 92caddy's mute swans

    Ducks:

    And now we will announce the prizes the following Grand Waterfowl Winner will receive: a charcoal ChickenSketch, by me, and a very special surprise: Nifty-Chicken has offered to put this pic as Pic Of the Week! It will be the first bird other than a chicken to EVER be featured in POTW!
    Aren't you all dying to know who won?
    Yes?
    All right then....
