During the time period of Dec 29, 2012 – Jan 9, 2013 I participated in the Friends of Sax-Zim Bog Brrrrdathon/Photothon. The non-profit organization Friends of Sax-Zim Bog is hosting the Photothon in the boreal forest of northeastern Minnesota & Northwestern Wisconsin. It is held to help raise funds with the goal to conserve and educate about the delicate and vanishing habitat of Sax-Zim Bog. At the end of the 12 days entrants submitted their 10 best photos for judging. Jan 12th was the compilation and awards. I found out I took 2nd with one of my male Pine Grosbeak photos also scoring 2nd highest. Here’s the gallery for the 10 photos that made up my submission. The photos were taken in Sax-Zim Bog as well as around our house. I didn’t get to photography some of the bird species I wanted to get but overall was happy with what I got.
