RIVER-CHAT - White-capped River-Chat by Larry McQueen
  RIVER-CHAT  (1996)
Subject: White-capped River-Chat
Dimensions (inches): 21 x 16
Medium: Gouache
Description: RIVER-CHAT

The range of the River-Chat extends across the Himalayas and into central China. It is a familiar bird, perching conspicuously on rocks around gushing streams. It is known by several names, all variations of 'White-capped River-Chat' and 'Water Redstart'. The species is in the Eurasian family of Redstarts. Unrelated to the American redstarts, which are part of the American Wood-Warbler family, redstarts of the Old World are closely related to thrushes. The River-Chat is the largest of the redstarts, almost the size of a dipper, and they share similar habitats.

This painting was done after my birding experiences in northern India and after completing the Redstart plates for 'Birds of South Asia – The Ripley Guide'. For this painting, I used Gouache on brown-toned paper.
