Look who just waddled in to say Hi!

Introducing the Whio (Blue Duck) who is an endangered New Zealand bird...

Acrylic On Canvas 
20cm W x 15cm H (8" x 6")

Because he's a bit shy he mainly hangs out in the fast flowing parts of rivers in mountainous areas so we don't hear about him much. He's a hoon on the rapids (why else would he own a kyak??).  He's a one woman man who helps guard the nest which is built on the ground - not great when theres predators around (stoats and other such furry losers)...and that's why we're losing them.

To read more about Mr Whio (first name "Terry" unconfirmed at this point) go to this page HERE.
