Redbird

Ink & Liquid Watercolor

9″ x 12″

 

Ah, a parrot!  Or is it?  Vivid, alive, the Redbird shimmers with color.  David Attenborough, the English naturalist who has produced and narrated so many nature programs on television, has a particularly wonderful segment about birds. Their behavior, while courting, can be  unbelievably comical, with a male strutting and blowing up what looks like purple bubble gum from his chest.  But this redbird is not showing courting colors; she is ready to fly.
