A traveling exhibit showcasing the nine winning images from a national photography contest is coming to Phoenix in November.
The National Audubon Photography Awards exhibit will appear at the Nina Mason Pulliam Rio Salado Audubon Center (3131 S. Central Avenue) from November 1-21. The annual contest focuses on birds, and this year's winners include photos of hummingbirds, macaws, ducks and birds of prey, Audubon Arizona said in a news release.
The nine winners were chosen from more than 9,000 entries, the organization said.
In addition, the exhibit will be featured at the center's monthly happy-hour event, "Birds 'n' Beer." That event, on Thursday, Nov. 19, will include a presentation by wildlife photographer and conservationist Nathaniel Smalley. Beer from Tempe's Four Peaks Brewing Co. will be served.
Admission to the traveling exhibit is free. For more information, visit az.audubon.org or call 602-468-6470.
