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 on the back. 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 blue-winged leafbird called, “All I Want is an Umbrella in My Drink.”
I grew up splashing about in the ocean. I traded in the sun-drenched beaches of Southern California for the chilly coasts of the Bay Area many years ago. My inner mermaid still craves rolling around in the waves and I try to make it to a warmer, friendlier ocean at least once a year, but it’s been too long.
What’s that got to do with anything? Well, this leafbird spends its days in SE Asia, where the oceans are a bit more welcoming.
Bird in a Box subscribers: this is the bird for May 2019.
About the Blue-Winged Leafbird
Medium-sized forest-dweller that is often seen in pairs or with mixed flocks. Male has a yellow tinge to the head and a triangular black patch with a deep blue center extending down from between the eye and the base of the bill. Female is green all over with a small blue smudge near the base of the bill. Both sexes have vivid blue highlights on the wings, which help to distinguish it from other similar leafbirds in its range such as Greater Green and Lesser Green Leafbirds, both of which have plain green wings.
