Tax included.

This debonair bandit who wears a mask, arrives to visit you with all his relatives, landing in the same shrub, and proceeding to feed vigorously. Many times they get drunk on the ripe berries and wobble, wobble and topple onto the ground. And forty-five minutes later they all leave town. Together these pictures portray a flock of birds in the same shrub, relaying berries down to each other.

Hang these pictures right to left, left to right, or one over the other as the branches interconnect three ways each to give a good composition.

This painting is one of a series of 10 songbirds that are all painted to be a set to make a grouping. The grouping consists of Northern Flicker, Mockingbird on Holly, Bluebird on Nandina, Cedar Waxwing, House Finch, Woodland Chickadee, Carolina Wren on Mahonia Berries, Southern Screech Owl and are scaled to go with the two Cedar Waxwings on Pyracantha Berries. The largest size this piece can be made is around     7'x 4'. Other sizes not listed here can be made to order.
