Friends of the IBA is pleased to announce the winners of our Third Annual Juried Art Show, co-sponsored by Glens Falls Friends of Photography. 
         Marion Bayly of Speculator took First Place in the "Life in the IBA" category with "Red-tail Lift Off."  This work beautifully captures the essence of Life in the Washington County Grasslands IBA!  Marion's first place entry won a "Raptor Encounter" donated by Adirondack Raptors, where she’ll be able to spend a day monitoring and banding wild hawks, falcons or owls.  The artist has generously offered to donate all proceeds from the sale of the work to Friends of the IBA for our work to protect state endangered Short-eared Owls and other at risk birds of the Washington County Grasslands Important Bird Area, or IBA.  Marion's entry also won "Best Photo" and a private Thoroughbred Farm Tour donated by Old Friends at Cabin Creek.
            Terry Hawthorne of Ballston Spa took First Place in "Best of Winter Raptor Fest" with her "Screech Owl" portrait, winning an overnight stay for two at Lant Hill Farm B & B in Argyle and a personal guided birding tour from Friends of the IBA.  She also won Best Photo and a My Muvie Family Cam donated by Ray Supply of Queensbury.
            Life in the IBA: Denise-Hackert Stoner of Loudonville took Second Place and a "Birders' Bounty" gift basket donated by Times Emporium of Whitehall with "Winter Bluebird". Tom Ryan of Queensbury took Third and a gift certificate from Clifford Oliver Photography of Greenwich with his intriguing watercolor titled "Osprey." 
            Best of Winter Raptor Fest: Ashley Meade of Queensbury took Second Place and a wine basket featuring locally produced wines from Oliva Vineyards for her portrait of a falcon titled "An Inquisitive Mind."  Stacy Bissell of Glens Falls took Third Place and a honey gift basket from Better Bee of Greenwich with an exciting photo of a free-flying hawk titled "Flight at Winter Raptor Fest."
