Kea are the only true alpine parrots in the world and thrive as cunning opportunists in the freezing conditions of the Southern Alps. Kea are thought to have developed their wide array of food-finding strategies during the last great ice age, where they learned to adapt using their unusual powers of curiosity.
It was completely by coincidence that I began this series before the release of Pokemon Go, which is kind of funny to me since now there’s tons of art floating around of the Legendary Birds! Now it’s my turn to contribute >:3
As usual, I have metallic prints of these three available on my Etsy for $8 USD each, or $20 USD for all three! The originals are also available for $40 USD each.
I also have a promo running until August 23rd, 2016, in celebration of Pokemon Go’s recent release; use the code POKEMONGO to receive 20% off your order when you spend $20 or more c:
#mypubliclandsroadtrip heads out this weekend to the South Fork of the Snake River in Idaho!
The majestic South Fork of the Snake River flows for 66 miles through high mountain valleys, rugged canyons, and broad flood plains. This section of the Snake River supports the largest riparian cottonwood gallery forest in the West and is among the most unique and diverse ecosystems in Idaho. It is a birdwatching paradise that is home to 126 bird species, including 21 raptors (birds of prey) and is designated as a National Important Bird Area. The river also supports the largest native cutthroat fishery outside of Yellowstone National Park. The South Fork is known throughout the country as a premier blue ribbon trout fishery, and was selected as the host site for the 1997 World Fly-Fishing Championship.
