Artist's notes:

shorebird or wader fine art illustrationsShorebirds make great subjects to illustrate. Like all birds, something about their feathers, beaks and feet are very conducive to the medium I work in. I marvel at their gracefulness, as I spy a heron or an egret searching for food in the shallows. Their colors and different sizes and shapes are perhaps the most intriguing of the bird families. Vacationing in northern Wisconsin, I was lucky enough to see a Sandhill Crane take flight from some distance. I was impressed by its massive size that was offset with the ease in which it ascended into the air, quickly clearing the treeline and disappearing over the horizon. Every few weeks I hope to add more shorebirds to this image library. If there's a particular wading bird you'd like to suggest please feel free to email me to request it.

Information about Shorebirds/Waders:

Shorebirds - called 'Waders' outside of North America - are very widespread and inhabit every continent save for Antarctica. They are long-legged most often found in swampy, wetlands area or coastal areas where there is slow moving or stagnant water where they can hunt for prey. Shorebirds feed on nearly any animal they can find in the shallows, such as fish, crustaceans, snails, frogs, snakes and insects. These birds vary greatly in size, from the tiny Least Sandpiper - which is a mere 5 inches (13 cm) long to herons that can be several feet tall. There is some discussion as to what birds fit into this category, but generally it includes snipes, sandpipers, avocets, herons, oystercatchers, cranes and storks.  Shorebirds are some of the greatest migrants in the world, often traveling thousands of miles in a year to reach breed areas. In many locations, shorebird populations are declining due to the disappearance or pollution of the wetlands they depend upon.
