Return to Silk Birds
Urban Flock: Mallards
Hand-painted Silk; image size: 15"x30"
Many species of wild birds adapt
well to urban life, few more-so than the ever-present Mallard duck.
This flock was observed gobbling seed scattered for their benefit on a paved pathway in a local park,
and I was engaged by the colourful visual rhythm of their bright orange feet and the males' iridescent green heads.
