Call for bird photos

by Anouk Hoedeman

Safe Wings Ottawa is looking for photos of local birds in local habitat to illustrate the Ottawa Bird Strategy, a document we are developing based on the Vancouver Bird Strategy  We specifically would like images showing:
  • typical Ottawa bird(s) against recognizable backdrops like Parliament Hill
  • birds in forests, wetlands, river, fields, urban backyards, suburban and rural areas, etc.
  • birds in different seasons (fall colours, winter).
  • Lac Deschênes-Ottawa River Important Bird Area
  • landscaping with native plants
  • birdwatchers (to illustrate tourism, economic development associated with birding)
  • nestling/fledgling birds
Please send your submissions to Photos should be high-resolution, and we will credit the photographers.
