WOOD THRUSH 4 by artist Samantha Jane Mullen
Pyrography, graphite and white ink on layered basswood cut-outs, 8.25“ x 6“
Shown in second image with “IF A TREE FALLS…” centerpiece and wood thrush companions (sold separately).
These migratory woodland friends are so cute and have a beautiful song. I can’t get over their amazing big black eyes.
Conservation status according to audubon.org:
“Numbers have declined seriously in recent decades. Cowbirds lay many eggs in their nests, so the thrushes often raise mainly cowbirds, with few young of their own. As forests are cut into smaller fragments, it apparently becomes easier for cowbirds to penetrate these small woodlots and find more of the thrush nests. The Wood Thrush is probably also losing wintering habitat in the tropics.”
