The familiar Southern Red Bishop is a childhood favourite. I still remember the elation I experienced when I first laid eyes on this creature, with its mix of inky black and fiery red plumage. While breeding males can hardly be considered LBJs, the nondescript females and non-breeding males are challenging to identify. They are often seen in tight foraging flocks in winter – and often lawns or golf courses, as depicted here.

This painting is available as a limited edition (set of 25) print, on high quality A3 paper. Brings a splash of colour to the room, and could work well with the Red-collared Widowbird, or the Yellow Bishop. 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.
