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.

This listing is for a limited edition, fine art print of my original painting of a Northern Saw-whet Owl called, “I’m Not Afraid Anymore.”
These owls are among my favorite. They’re super small with extra large eyes – they look extra vulnerable. This particular little fellow is brave, though. Bird in a Box subscribers: this is the bird for August 2016.
About the bird:
From our friends at Audubon:
“Birders who prowl through conifer groves in winter sometimes find this round-headed little gnome perched there, sitting still as if to avoid notice. Avoiding notice is a task at which this owl often succeeds; it is overlooked in many places where it occurs. Late at night in the breeding season, males give a rhythmic tooting song that may go on for hours with scarcely a break. The bird was named for this song, which reminded settlers of the sound of a whetstone sharpening a saw.”
|Conservation status||Probably some declines in numbers with loss of habitat, but still widespread and fairly common.|
|Habitat||Forests, conifers, groves. Breeds most commonly in coniferous forest of various kinds, including open pine forest, spruce-fir associations, white cedar swamps; also mixed woods such as pine-oak, spruce-poplar, and others. In some places, breeds in oak woodland or in streamside groves in arid country. Winters in habitats with dense cover, especially groves of conifers.|
