Protecting and rescuing migratory birds from building collisions is critically important work. The Fatal Light Awareness Program (FLAP) is a conservation group has been leading efforts to reduce these unnecessary deaths and I’ve been inspired by their mission. Last week I met with members of the FLAP team to see about lending them a hand, and starting in July I’ll be releasing bird art prints with a portion from each sale going to this great cause.
The first print will be the Eastern Kingbird I recently finished which was painted from a bird found by FLAP volunteers on patrol. Additional prints will be focused on species in decline like the Chimney Swift and Eastern Whip-poor-will.
