Bluebirds Love Sumac

Bluebirds Love Sumac
Watercolor, 22 x 30

Bluebirds are a wonderful success story of citizen efforts to restore a declining species. Once endangered, through concerted efforts (and lots of bluebird houses in the yards of volunteers) the bluebirds have been brought back from a 70 % decline. One of their favored foods in the wild foods is sumac, another of my favorite wild shrubs.

You can see this work in my Etsy Shop or learn more about my painting, teaching, and career development experiences on my blog.

This is lovely! The red leaves are a nice contrast the bluebirds!
