Wendy PalmerAFC, IGOR Nature Artist - Wildlife, Landscape and Floral
Subject: Mountain Bluebird, Birds Dimensions (inches): 9 x 12 Medium: Oil on Canvas Description: In most areas, the sight of a Robin signifies Spring, in our neck of the woods seeing the first Mountain Bluebird means Spring is finally here. Mountain bluebirds are one of the first species to arrive back in Alberta in the spring from their breeding grounds in the southern states. Mountain Bluebirds in Alberta are most commonly seen in the park-lands and foothills. They once nested in the Peace River Country, but seem to have all but disappeared from those northern park-lands. They are absent from the open prairie but sometimes nest along prairie coulees and river banks. This brightly colored male bluebird nested with his mate in our nest box near my home in close proximity to an Alberta wetland area. He would come and peck at my window as if to get noticed. Needless to say his beautiful iridescent blue colouration and soft melodious warble always caught my attention.
Wendy Palmer is very honored to have "Mountain Bluebird" selected by an independant jury to exhibit in the virtual gallery of 'The Art of Conservation - An International Exhibition of Nature in Art' 2011
