Dark Eyed Junco' Song

24 x 36"

Dark Eyed Junco's Song.  The Snowbird or Dark Eyed Junco is a common delight at bird feeders in the winter in the Ann Arbor area.  This small warbler has a series of songs which it repeats in a fairly unchanging order.  Each song or syllable consists of one or more notes that are rendered as songs.   There may be an instant when looking at such a painting that one has a sense of the sound of the bird.  This substituting one sense for another is called synaesthesia.
