Cowra Archibird photo competition 2021

Time to get your photo’s in for this years Archibird photo competition. We are so excited to be able to support the Cowra Natural Resource Management Committee to run this again for the 3rd year. Hopefully it is going to become a permanent event.

This competition has received exceptional support from our community with over 200 entries last year covering about 65 different species. Lets make this year even bigger!!!!

Remember this is about showcasing the amazing birds in our region and involving you all in getting out into nature to try your hand at bird photography 🙂 Your photo’s don’t need to be perfect.

We are calling it Cowra bird month and have picked October as it coincides with the National Aussie Backyard Bird count. Did you know that last year within the Cowra LGA there were 39 observers who took part during the week and 88 bird species recorded for the area. Those 39 observers recorded 4725 individual birds during that week.

It would be great to have more people taking part in the Aussie Backyard bird count for the region as well. This runs from the 18th – 24th October. You can find all the information you need to partake in the count here. I’m no good at photographing birds so I’ll participate in this instead 😉

Please note entries for the Archibird close on the 12th November.
