This attractive little hunter, with its elegant combination of greys, yellows and greens, punctuated by a fiery red eye, is a common member of mixed foraging parties in lowland woodland habitats throughout much of subtropical Africa. It is quick to respond to threats such as owls or snakes, voicing its concern with gravelly calls.
This painting is available as a limited edition (set of 25) print, on high quality A3 paper. This image could also work in a series with the other four apalis species – perhaps lined up in a hallway or office wall, or next to a staircase. Each image is signed by the artist, and numbered. The bird’s name is penciled at the bottom left of the plate. Please contact me if you are interested.
