Well all birds cannot be pretty but all birds are pretty interesting. So here is my latest sweet lil'bird to awe and amuse. Its not a local Alberta bird but he captured my attention recently and being endeared I had to immortalize him with a portrait.This painting as yet needs a title, got any good ideas?
I was out at a farm photographing goats when this fella set to screaming and running back an forth the breast of the field like a maniacal sentry warning every creature for miles that a stranger was about. This adorable fella is a Guinea Fowl which is native to Africa yet held in captivity in many countries. I believe farmers keep them as live warning sirens to scare off foxes and coyotes and I read that they love to eat ticks, now thats a bonus. May everyone have a great day and a wonderful weekend.
