The Cowra Natural Resource Management Committee have been able to run this competition during 2020 and what fantastic entries we had. Mid Lachlan Landcare partnered with the committee to help out with the admin of the competition and also provided some funding through the ‘Saving our Superb Parrot’ project which is funded under the NSW Government Saving our Species program.
This year we had Open, Teen & Youth categories as well as a best Superb Parrot photo prize. Check out the winning pictures below. If you would like to see all the amazing pictures then go to the Cowra NRM facebook page.
John Cooper was the judge of the Open, Teen and Youth categories. What a difficult task he had!!
We were also lucky to have 3 individuals who have been very important in the ‘Saving our Superb Parrot’ project judge the Best Superb Parrot photo. These were Damon Oliver (Department of Planning, Industry & Environment), Gordon Refshauge (Chairman of Hovells Creek Landcare) and John Rankin (Cowra Woodland Birds).
Overall we had over 200 entries and at least 65 different bird species were photographed all within 100km of Cowra. The plan is to run this again in 2021 so get your cameras out and start snapping so you have some entries ready for next year 🙂
