Subject: Secretarybird Dimensions (inches): 24 x 30 Medium: Oil Description: Endemic to Africa, the Secretary bird hunts for lizards and snakes in the open grasslands and savannah of the sub-Sahara. It is the only bird of prey predominantly terrestrial habits, they may walk up to 20 miles in a day. Standing up to 4ft tall, it has very long legs, with black feathered thighs. It has a grey body, black feathers & white wing linings, its tail has two black central streamers. Its most distinctive feature are the 20 black crest feathers, resembling quill pens. Because of its gregarious and flamboyant behavior, I have painted this beautiful bird in a regal stance in full display.
