THE ART OF THE MANDARIN

I recently blogged about the Mandarin that showed up in New York City, tizzying the local bird listers.  Better than that is this bit of beauty from my friend, Kirk Gooding, who painted a pair of Mandarins when they suddenly appeared without explanation in Ashland a decade ago:MANDARIN ART.  My favorite piece of Kirk’s fine work is a small painting of a Wilson’s Snipe he gave me, the bird standing on one leg as is often the case.  Kirk and I frequently see snipe in the spring in the Howard Prairie area east of Ashland, or Summer Lake or Malheur.   We are among birding’s many admiring snipers.
