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, titled, and numbered 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 Rufous-tailed Hummingbird titled, “Into the Blue Once Again.”
This adorable little fellow was photographed by an ornithologist who was kind enough to let me use her reference photo to work from. This bird’s sweet feathers sparkle like jewels, don’t you think?
Bird in a Box subscribers: this is the bird for September 2021.
About the Rufous-tailed Hummingbird
From The Cornell Lab of Ornithology
The Rufous-tailed Hummingbird is found in areas like clearings, gardens, forest edges and some secondary forests. They prefer lower habitats and may frequent bird feeders that are in open areas with some coverage.
Like most hummingbirds, they’re extremely aggressive and territorial. It dives at other hummingbirds or large insects (such as butterflies) that invade their feeding area.
Like many other hummingbirds, its metabolic rate is so high that it goes into a torpor state at night to conserve energy. The Rufous-tailed Hummingbird is polygynous. Males will often become territorial over an area of flowers, presumably not only for their nectar but for courting females.
They’re perhaps the most common species of hummingbird at the forest edge and in gardens and cultivated areas from southern Mexico to northwestern South America.
