Winner 2017 Audubon Photography Awards - Varied Thrush

I’m thrilled and honored to announce that my Varied Thrush photo is one of the winners of the 2017 Audubon Photography Awards.

The photos of four photographers were recognized and selected from over 5,500 photo entrants across the United States and Canada.  Categories are Grand Prize, Professional, Amateur, and Youth.  My photo won the Amateur Category.  There are four Honorable Mentions recognized in each category as well.

I wrote about this bird in a previous blog post on February 15, 2017.  The Varied Thrush is one of my favorite songbirds because it is a beautifully colored bird with a haunting song found primarily in the Pacific Northwest.  I took the photo in one of the loveliest places in the Puget Sound – Washington Park Arboretum in Seattle.

You can view the Varied Thrush photo in my Songbirds Gallery.  As with all of my gallery images, it is available for purchase as a fine art giclée print produced with archival inks on fine art paper.  Simply click on the Purchase Print link and you will be taken through an easy purchase and checkout process.
