Our second photo competition for this year is Being Blue.  For this competition we ask our members to submit pictures of birds which have the word "blue" in their species name (a fairly limited list) OR birds which have blue in their plumage or other features; this extends the list of available species considerably - parrots and kingfishers come immediately to mind, or even Pied Cormorants - so you should be able to find something suitable fairly easily.  As already notified (on the 2018 Competition Themes page, and in the February Newsletter) we will NOT accept photos of Superb Fairy-wrens for this competition; they are the most common species in our galleries, and they were the subject of a special competition several years ago.

This competition is open to members for submission of entries until 6PM (AET) Monday 23rd April 2018.  Images for this competition must have been taken within the last two years.  Images submitted to previous competitions, or to the New Images gallery, may be submitted to this competition; if you choose to do this, you must resubmit the image to the competition gallery; images moved from another existing gallery will not be accepted.  See the Photo Gallery - Competitions section for full details and rules of our competitions, and quick access to the current competition galleries.
