It is a sad thing that some species are endangered, but unfortunately, they are. I am a member of many conservation societies, and I believe it is important to work to protect endangered species. The ivory-billed woodpecker –the most beautiful of woodpeckers—is near extinction.

The coloration of the ivory-billed woodpecker is similar to that of the pileated woodpecker, but it has more white on its feathers and its bill is an ivory color. It is also one of the largest woodpeckers in the world.

In recent years, some biologists have reported sightings of ivory-billed woodpeckers in Louisiana and northeastern Texas, but none of these has been confirmed. Recent observations in Cuba however, have been confirmed, so we can be confident that some individuals of this species still survive.

The purpose of this painting is to alert people to what is happening to our natural heritage and to make them aware of the beauty of this endangered species.
