Artwork details:
Original watercolour and ink artwork, ‘Radford’, Red-browed Finch*

Shannon went into a ‘little bird’ frenzy with her latest collection of artworks. The inquisitive little head tilt and striking red brow of this spiffy firecracker finch was the perfect amount of quirk that Shannon loves to capture in an artwork! What a beauty!

Before starting an artwork Shannon researches her subject thoroughly to intimately know its habits, movements, personality and colouring to ensure she can capture it all in her artwork.
One of the bonuses of this research for her art collectors is that her research is then also combined into a summarised paragraph which becomes part of the Certificate of Authenticity, see below:

The Red-browed Finch or Red-browed Firetail occurs mostly east of the Great Dividing Range, between Cape York in Queensland and the Mount Lofty Ranges in South Australia. Its preference for open grassy areas surrounded by dense shrubbery enables the Red-browed Finch to survive well in weedy areas along railway tracks and creek lines where seeding grasses escape the lawnmower. It may also benefit from bird feeders, provided the seeds are small and larger competitors are infrequent. Often seen foraging for grass seeds and insects on the ground, the Red-browed Finch usually occurs in flocks of up to 10 birds, sometimes more, flying into dense undergrowth if disturbed by a passer-by. It often forages with other seed-eating birds, especially other finches and parrots such as Red-rumped Parrots. Red-browed Finches also often associate with small insectivorous species, especially family groups of Superb Fairy-wrens, as well as Yellow-rumped Thornbills. The association with the fairy-wrens is especially interesting, as the simple song of the Red-browed Finch sometimes sounds superficially similar to the contact call of the Superb Fairy-wren. Both sexes are similar in appearance and share the nest-building and incubation and feeding of the young when they hatch. Conservation Status: Secure.
