These charming and characterful little buntings are highly nomadic. At certain times of year they can be abundant in open, rocky areas in sparse woodland habitats, with their lively songs drifting over the landscape for hours on end. Then, suddenly, they disappear for months on end. They are pictured here in a typical haunt: rocky tumbles, encrusted in lichens, with a Stamvrug plant Englerophytum magalismontanum.

This painting is available as a limited edition (set of 25) print, on high quality A3 paper. 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.
