Artist Statement: 
The Ethiopian Bushcrow is endemic to savanna with mature acacia trees in southern Ethiopia. There are estimated to be around 9000 pairs remaining, but the species is declining due to habitat loss, principally due to overgrazing and cutting of acacia trees for firewood. It is a beautiful but rather monochrome bird, so I wanted to show it against a background of vivid colours; the oranges of the dry grasses, the blue of the African sky and the bursts of fresh green acacia leaves.
