Artist's Description

Watercolour of Maui Parrot Bill, an endangered species with airbrushed sky. Flora include hibiscus, shrimp plant, orchids and cala lily.

The Maui Parrotbill (Pseudonestor xanthophrys) is a species of finch in the Fringillidae family. It is found only in Hawaii on the Island of Maui. The Maui parrot bill is a five-inch long, olive-green topped bird with a yellow belly. Its legs are also an olive color. The bill is parrot-like and is black, with a longer top bill and a smaller lower bill. It has a distinct black eye stripe starting from the bill, around the eyes and tapering off at the back of the head. The strong beak allows the bird to crush branches of trees to reveal invertebrates hidden within. The bill’s thickness is not its only factor for breaking branches, it also has surprisingly large muscles connected to its bill, which makes it even tougher.
