Hydrobates macrodactylus by RoseMarie Condon(8 in. x 8 in. | acrylic | ID#3882)
Family: HYDROBATIDAE | Conservation Status: Critically Endangered | Population Trend: unknown
Guadalupe Storm Petrels were sea bird that nested high in that island’s mountains rearing one offspring each breeding season. Once plentiful their numbers were seriously impacted as the island of Guadalupe became overrun with feral cats that eventually hunted them to extinction. Birds are fascinating as subjects for sketching, painting and photography. Wherever possible I help my local bird population thrive. A cat lover at heart I am deeply concerned, feral cats kill large numbers of our native birds. We need to find ways to protect flora and fauna in our own backyard and beyond.
