About the Bird Art:
The image is printed on Epson Premium Matte Paper with UltraChrome Ink; the color should last quite a long time. The print is then mounted on a cradled wood block and coated with a UV resistant protectant to prevent fading. Each block is signed and numbered on the back (the edition # you receive will vary). Ready to hang from a sawtooth hanger attached to the back. Watermarks will not appear on print. Color may vary (based on your monitor settings).

This listing is for a limited edition, fine art print of my original painting of a Bald Eagle called, “They Say Knowledge is a Dream.”
This is bald eagle is named Liberty. He lives at the World Bird Sanctuary in Missouri. He gets lots of love and care from his handlers after having a rather rough start at life.
Here’s his story, from the World Bird Sanctuary’s website:
Liberty, a male bald eagle, arrived at the Florida Audubon Society’s rehabilitation center in the summer of 1992, as a juvenile, with a fractured coracoid (similar to a human collar bone). After healing, he was banded and released at the Merritt Island, Florida, National Wildlife Refuge on 10/30/92. Three weeks later he was found in St. Augustine, Florida, with a dislocated humerus (shoulder) and permanent retinal damage to both eyes. It is believed he was hit by a car.
After healing, Liberty was transferred to the World Bird Sanctuary, where he became a featured educational bird. In his travels he has helped to educate thousands of audiences about the amazing success story of our national symbol. His calm and relaxed attitude, along with his regal bearing, has made him a popular favorite with handlers and audiences alike.
I’ll be sharing a portion of my sales from this print with the World Bird Sanctuary.
Bird in a Box subscribers: this is the bird for September 2017.
About the Bird
From our Friends at the Audubon Society:
“The emblem bird of the United States, majestic in its appearance. It is not always so majestic in habits: it often feeds on carrion, including dead fish washed up on shore, and it steals food from Ospreys and other smaller birds. At other times, however, it is a powerful predator. Seriously declining during much of the 20th century, the Bald Eagle has made a comeback in many areas since the 1970s. Big concentrations can be found wintering along rivers or reservoirs in some areas. ”
|Conservation status||Numbers declined seriously during the first two-thirds of the 20th century. Shooting was one major cause; even after the eagles were given full legal protection, they continued to decline, probably because of the effects of DDT and other persistent pesticides. Following the banning of DDT, numbers have been increasing gradually since the 1970s, with spectacular recoveries in some states.|
|Family||Hawks and Eagles|
|Habitat||Coasts, rivers, large lakes; in migration, also mountains, open country. Typically close to water, also locally in open dry country. Occurs in a variety of waterside settings where prey is abundant, including swamps in Florida, edges of conifer forest in southeastern Alaska, treeless islands in Aleutians, desert rivers in Arizona. Also winters in some very dry western valleys.|
