Red-tailed Hawk - Photo Kirt Beiling:

Congratulations to Kirt Beiling and Tom Sheley for winning our recent photo contest. You may recall that the contest was designed to provide photos for our service awards that are presented in March.

Kirt Beiling: Red-tailed HawkKirt Beiling’s closeup of a Red-tailed Hawk was chosen to represent the James Chase Hambleton Award. This award is given for distinguished service in the area of conservation in Central Ohio. Kirt’s handsome picture of a rehabilitated native Ohio hawk very aptly conveys this concept.

Tom Sheley: Song SparrowThe Song Sparrow award is given for significant contributions to the mission of Columbus Audubon. Tom’s photograph of a stately song sparrow was befitting of this honor.
