Western Ground Parrot.. Mural of Hope.



Two fabulous murals.. one for Monday Murals today and one for next week as I will be in Sydney then. Mega talented Perth artist Brenton See whose work you have seen here many times created the 'Mural of Hope for the Western Ground Parrot' at the Perth Zoo to highlight their Western Ground Parrot breeding program. The western ground parrot, endemic to Western Australia, is one of the rarest bird species in the world, their numbers dropping rapidly mainly due to introduced predators and bush fires. Brenton's love of birds and wildlife inspired his Endemic Birds of WA Mural Project check out his blog here. You have to respect and admire the passion. Hope you are having a super Easter weekend, happy Monday take care and stay safe..

  1. Beautifully painted murals. How awful it would be to lose these wonderful birds. They remind me so much of the Peach-faced Lovebirds that we see flying around Phoenix these days.

  6. That is a gorgeous bird and I love how the artist has captured well the way the feathers bundle up on the bird's sides and back; that layered look. Let's hope that the dangers the parrot faces are dealt with soon and effectively.

  9. Those are wonderful murals of fine looking birds. Good post. Thank you for your comments on my Pow Wow dancer photos. I believe they are mostly Lakota and Teton Sioux Native people although other tribes are also represented. The Pow Wow, a traditional drum, song, and dance event called Wacipi, is open to anyone who is interested in coming to watch.

  12. What wonderful works. Ground parrots, here and in New Zealand, are very susceptible to predators. Though, I do wonder how they survived with dingoes.
