Currently available only as an original from the Artist Chris Spiker at: –  no reproductions are proposed.

I have been wanting to paint this bird for years and decided that it would form part of a series of bird head paintings. This is the third picture in that series. I will leave this bird as a graphite drawing due to the fact that this is almost the actual colour of the bird- a very wrinkled leathery head- and the bill I love.
