FRIENDS OF ANAHUAC REFUGE
The winter contest is now over and there were many great photos submitted. Each week the decision for the weekly winner was a difficult decision. This made choosing the final winners from the 12 weekly winners even more difficult. Here are the final results for the winter contest.
The 1st place image is the beautiful photo of a Bobcat taken by Rob Heifner. Rob wins a pair of Vortex Crossfire 10x50 binoculars. Congratulations Rob!
The 2nd place image is the image of a coyote taken by Doug Haass. Doug wins a pair of Vortex Crossfire 8x42 binoculars. Congratulations Doug
The 3rd place image is a picture of one of the winter residents at the refuge, the elusive Nelson's Sparrow taken by Jim Stough. Jim wins a photo Bean Bag from the Vest Guy. Congratulations Jim.
