Starling Flight Amid the Electrical Towers

Just finished up this image today which I'm adding to my growing collection of "Graphic Birds", which are basically silhouettes of our feathered friends out and about in the world. This series started out as pretty much all Crows, a personal favourite, and it's now grown to include one young Bald Eagle and the humble European Starling. These humble little birds can often be seen in massive  groups in over the farmland near Boundary Bay, south of Vancouver, BC.

This particular flock was photographed in the Spring on one of my many jaunts around Serpentine Fen, an important wildlife and waterfowl protected area in South Surrey. The paths take you right under these massive powerlines and their huge supporting towers, with the hum and crackle of the electrical current buzzing in the air. Here you are sure to see not only the many Starlings but Bald Eagles perched atop these structures too.

This image is currently available as art tiles, 8x8 wall panels and archival prints. Find it and me at the Granville Island Public Market through the Christmas season!
