Border Rivers Gwydir CMA and Council’s Wings ‘n Things Bird and Bush Festival jointly present the Gwydir Birds Photography Competition with a total prize pool of $800 for photographs taken over the festival weekend, 4 to 7 October.

The competition includes sections for rare, threatened or endangered birds to raise awareness of the vulnerability of species such as the Brown Treecreeper, Hooded Robin, Specked Warbler, Golden Whistler, Diamond Firetail, Grey-Crowned Babbler, Brush Turkey, Regent Honeyeater, Squirrel Glider, Bush stone Curlew or Eastern Yellow Robin, all of which can be found in the Gwydir Shire.

The competition also has a section for bird habitats and landscapes, drawing attention to the abundance of grassy woodlands within Gwydir Shire that few would realise are a threatened habitat in need of preserving.
