On annual camping trips to North East California and South East Oregon, happening upon a pair of these stately birds has always been a source of joy and wonder for me. When they are accompanied by their young fluffy offspring it is even more entertaining! But that is also worrisome: when I am going to sleep after seeing them I worry about all the predators in the area! This particular bird was one of many thousands gathered along the Platte River in Nebraska, where they have gathered for years to rest on their long Spring migration. The Sandhill is one of the oldest living bird species on earth.

These brilliantly hued songbirds appeared alongside the Mad River near where I live in Blue Lake this Spring! Their lively song enhanced my walks along the levy and this is the 1st of my images of them.

"Golden Thought" is from an ongoing series of bird images on which I work spontaneously. With a loose idea in mind, I randomly  roll out 3 colors of recycled oil based ink  on hard plastic. Then I wipe out my image with cotton swabs and bits of paper towel. When I am satisfied with the emerging image, I place the plastic on the bed of an etching press, cover it with damp rag paper, and roll it through the press. The pressure forces the ink into the paper and the image appears!

This image is a reminder for me of the sacredness of our natural world. The mystery and wonder of a bird and of wildflowers are timeless.
