‘Fancy Fella’

By Shannon Dwyer
Limited Edition Print for BirdLife Australia*

‘Fancy Fella’ was painted by Australian artist Shannon Dwyer using watercolour, acrylic paint and detailing with a traditional nib and high-pigment ink, inspired by the importance of biodiversity in urban areas to assist Australian wildlife, such as the beautiful Eastern Rosella, that are now more displaced thanks to our growing cities/population.

Shannon couldn’t pass up painting such a beaut lookin’ bird after watching an Eastern Rosella drink from a park tap. There are some lovely hidden intricacies amongst the splotchy textures of this painting. Shannon got lost in capturing the patterns of its amazing plumage and the wonderful personality and rich colours of the beautiful Eastern Rosella. The Eastern Rosella is one of the iconic sights of Australia, native to the eastern states of the continent and Tasmania. Found in open woods, grass, farmland and bushland, they are also often found in urban areas. Despite the bold colouration, their plumage is patterned so that it creates an extremely effective camouflage. When they are feeding on the ground or perched among the foliage they can be very difficult to see which also assists in avoiding detection by potential predators. These incredibly playful and unique birds mate for life. The female chooses and prepares the nesting site, usually a hollow in a eucalypt tree, where she incubates the eggs while the male regularly feeds her. Unfortunately, Eastern Rosellas now have to compete with introduced species for suitable nest hollows, and are often killed by domestic pets and feral cats. The Eastern Rosella is on the IUCN’s list as a non-threatened species of ‘Least Concern’.
