Vermont Bird Museum Special Exhibit

So a few days ago I opened an email from The Birds of Vermont Museum and read
"Dear Susi,
We had so many wonderful submissions to our call to artists! We’re delighted to invite you to show your piece, “Red-bellied Woodpecker”, with us for our Breeding Bird Atlas exhibit. If the Titmouse is available, we'd exhibit it also...

This exhibit celebrates the Vermont Center for Ecostudies’ updated Breeding Birds of Vermont atlas and its release as a printed book (see more at ). This atlas is a gigantic citizen-science project and the result of hundreds of volunteers and thousands of hours of birding observations and data analysis. The art will show how we see and treasure birds through many perspectives, complementing science and conservation.
Our exhibit runs from May 1 through October 31.

The Birds of Vermont Museum is in Huntington Vermont and collaborates with the Vermont Audubon and other organizations to preserve and record the amazing birds in Vermont. I feel very honored to be one of the artists invited to participate in this fantastic exhibit.
If you are interested in purchasing a bird or want a custom bird please contact me. I have made several (examples below) and am willing to work to your specifications.
