"WHITE PELICAN IN GRASS"

"WHITE PELICAN IN GRASS"

The White Pelican is a migratory bird that visits Florida in the winter, some travel all the way from Canada. In Florida we can compart them to Brown Pelicans, which are 1/3 smaller. Unlike Brown Pelicans which are solo hunters, White Pelicans work as a group to corral bait fish then simultaneously attack. They tend to fly in groups making an almost squadron flight pattern in the sky that is exciting to see. This etching is created using a single copper plate. All the color you see is entirely done by hand with transparent watercolors. It is one of four birds in the larger etching, “Florida Bird Series III.”
