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 Fischer’s Turaco called, “Don’t Lean on Me Man.”
I so admired this bird’s fancy do that I went and dyed my hair pink. I kept thinking that perhaps this bird might have inspired David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust. Do you see the similarities? At any rate, Bowie helped me title this piece.
Bird in a Box subscribers: this is the bird for August 2017.
About the Bird
From our Friends at the Beauty of Birds:
This Turaco is found in East Kenya, South Somalia, East Tanzania, Nambia, Angola, Zambia, South-Eastern parts of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (formerly Zaire), Malawi, Namibia, North-east Botswana, Zimbabwe, and Mozambique. It is the only Turaco species to be also found outside mainland Africa – living on the offshore island of Zanzibar.
As they prefer humid forests areas, their natural habitats include subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and moist montains, and arable land. They can be seen in dry open savanna woodlands, farms, parks and suburban gardens – often near water.
This species is threatened by habitat loss.
