Congrats to Liron Gertsman on his new featured documentary and winning the Audubon Awards!
Big Congrats to Liron Gertsman on his incredible achievement! Read about it below:
I love his parakeet shot it's so technically brilliant! The hummer is so artistic and eagle's talons so unique and out of the box thinking.
He also had 8 pictures selected for the TOP 100 and BC young birder Ian Harland has one too, see HERE
On top of this Liron made a documentary film "Surf Scoters: People Living With Nature" thatnis being displayed at the Museum of Vancouver now in Nature Vancouver's "Wild Things" exhibition. It opened on June 28, 2018 and closes in Dec 2019.

You can watch his documentary below:
Massive Congratulations Liron! I am so very proud of you. You have achieved so much and what a great way to celebrate your high school grad and all these achievements in beautiful St. Paul Alaska. That's a place I'm dying to go. I can't wait to see your photos from there! Certainly they will be more award winners. Whenever you watch Liron photograph you can see the respect and patience he has for nature. The birds are always settled and never flush it's really evident in his shorebird work. So many more great things to come from Liron as he enters adulthood I'm sure of it!
And an aside another Young Birder Sasha Fairbairn who recently joined our program from Surrey, just found out she got into the Beaverhill Bird Observatory's Geoff Holroyd Young Ornithologists’ Workshop in AB. Congrats to her too! Cole Gaerber did this program last year and loved it. It's a fully paid week camp/internship just like Issac Nelson and Bridget Spencer are going to next month as well at the Doug Tarry Young Ornithologists' Workshop at Long Point in ONT. Liron and several other young BC Birders like Josh Brown and Logan Lalonde have completed that amazing program as well.
These BC youth never stop amazing me!
