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 an Oak Titmouse called, “Things Are Really Great Here.”
One of these sweet (but fierce) little fellows has recently taken up residence in my backyard. I’m amazed at how big a sound he makes for such a tiny creature. I think he’s currently focused on finding a mate, trying to convince any potential mate of how great things are in his world.
Bird in a Box subscribers: this is the bird for April 2017.

About the Bird
From our Friends at Audubon:
As plain as a bird can be, marked only by a short crest, the Oak Titmouse nonetheless has personality. Pairs or family parties travel about the woods together, exploring the twigs for insects and calling to each other frequently. Until recently, this bird and the Juniper Titmouse were regarded as one species under the name of Plain Titmouse.
|Conservation status||Very common in parts of its range, but surveys suggest declining numbers in recent decades.|
|Family||Chickadees and Titmice|
|Habitat||Oak woods, pinyon-juniper; locally river woods, shade trees. Along Pacific seaboard, occurs most commonly in oak woodland, including areas where oaks meet streamside trees or pines; also in well-wooded suburbs, rarely in coniferous forest in mountains. In the interior, also occurs in some woodlands dominated by pine or juniper.|
They can be found throughout California (closer to the coast) as well as northern parts of Baja California.
