Road Show of 2016's Best Avian Photography Coming!
Roadshow of 2016’s Best Avian Photography Coming to Duval and St. Johns County Wild Birds Unlimited Stores.
Mark your calendars for this exhibit! Visit the Wild Birds Unlimited Store, Julington Village in Fruit Cove between February 24th and March 4th and the Jacksonville Beach store in the South Beach Regional Shopping Center at the beach end of Butler Boulevard between March 6th and March 16th to walk among the winning bird photographs from this year’s Audubon Photography Awards and learn more about your local birdlife. Selected from over 7,000 entries—submitted from all 50 states, DC, and Canada—the winning photos were published in the May/June 2016 issue of Audubon magazine. A panel of five judges had the daunting task of sifting through the stunning images and grading them based on technical quality, originality and artistic merit.
Each store is planning a special event around the exhibit. Wild Birds Unlimited at the beaches and Duval Audubon are planning an event on Saturday, March 11. Details to be announced soon. The St. Johns County Audubon Chapter will be hosting a reception at the Fruit Cove store on Monday, February 27 @ 6:30pm to highlight these photos, provide information about the local chapter and its activities, and provide advice on nature photography.
Grand Prize Winner, Bonnie Block; Bald Eagle and Great Blue Herons
