FIRST PLACE 2017

Great Egret, by DEAN HARRIS (above)

"My egret photo was taken just before sunset at one of my favorite trailside benches. While it’s always enjoyable to hike on the trails, sometimes I can more fully appreciate the beauty of the lagoon environment by just sitting down and letting nature put on a show for me. I especially enjoy watching the winter bird migration unfold every year." —Dean Harris
 

PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARD 2017

Red-tailed Hawk, by MARC FRIEDMANN

"This Red-tailed hawk had been around for a few days. That ever-vigilant eye makes you feel like you're being sized up as a potential meal. Living by the Rios trailhead for nearly 30 years I've hiked every mile of every trail dozens of times. San Elijo Lagoon is constantly changing. Birds and other wildlife are always present. After years of brown drought, this spring has been the most green and flower-filled ever!"
—Marc Friedmann, People's Choice Award and Legacy Circle Member
