ENDANGERED Goldcrest

36.95

Painting of a goldcrest on 10 x 10 cm mdf panel. Painted with acrylic paint (Amsterdam Expert line) and finished with a matte varnish.
Comes ready to hang with a small, gold colored hook.

On the 12 panels of endangered birds I have given the background a slight distressed look. The edges are sanded down gently, and there might be a few scratches in the background. Just to symbolize the ‘damage’ that is already done to nature. Nothing too serious to prevent us from seeing the beauty of it though.

Description

The goldcrest (Regulus regulus) is a very tiny bird. And that is no understatement! It √°ctually is the smallest European bird, weighing around 5 grams. The scientific name (R. regulus) means ‘king’ or ‘knight’.

It is listed as ‘of least concern’ by the IUCN red list.
Although species might be listed like this, I still consider these birds endangered. Because our whole ecosystem is threatened by climate change. Sad, but true. Let’s take good care of our planet and our birds!
