Magpie Nest Building

Arvada, Colorado

A black-billed magpie delivers a stick for nest construction in spring of 2020. I watched the pair work tirelessly for weeks, before they moved on, presumably to a second nest site. These brilliant birds of the Corvid family are a joy to witness - just selecting the right stick for the job is a very selective process.

Magpie Nest Building print

My archival prints are printed on professional paper that holds color and detail and looks great mounted.  All prints are signed.

Select a print size:

DuraPlaq Mounted

The Duraplaq Standard substrate is a 3/8" HDF board that is 100% recycled, environmentally friendly and is pre-laminated on both sides and finished with a "box" frame. The finished picture has a clean look and the matte laminate greatly reduces glare, allowing you to see the image. Duraplaq mounted prints can be cleaned with your normal glass cleaning products and are extremely durable.
