Subject: New Zealand Rifleman on Native Kauri Dimensions (centimeters): 43 x 32 Medium: Oil Description: This painting features New Zealand,s smallest endemic bird, the rifleman, looking for insects on the bark of a native kauri tree. The rifleman isn't endangered but it is declining. The cause is considered likely to be related to habitat clearance initially, compounded by the impacts of introduced pest species, particularly stoats. ‘Watchful' is so called to convey the bird's alert attention to both food and danger as well as to convey the close observation of its declining conservation status.
