Amber Mountain Rock-thrush
Monticola erythronotus by Rebecca Richman(8 in. x 8 in. | Watercolor & Pastel | ID#3964)
Family: MUSCICAPIDAE | Conservation Status: Endangered | Population Trend: decreasing
Fluid, viable relationships bring into focus the connection of one life to another, and the ways in which we impact our planet and are impacted by it. I create images that reveal the inherent bond between species and ecosystems, people and the natural world. The Amber Mountain Rock-thrush has been found only in Madagascar's Amber Mountain massif. The bird's population is estimated to be less than 5,000 due to habitat loss and deforestation. As you view this image, feel the optimism as the brilliantly colored male sings to his mate with hope for a bright future. We can restore balance in our natural world! Yes we can!
