My grandfather is a keen bird watcher and had worked with the National Trust for years and even to this day! Throughout my childhood he taught me about birds and how important and amazing these creatures are. Through research I had noticed many birds are close to extinction. My grandfather told me the consequences pesticide can have towards birds. This is why I have dedicated my piece to my grandfather. His knowledge of birds and love for the wildlife has inspired me to create a simple piece of a stunning bird that is now close to extinction due to our careless man-made mistakes.
