James Fenwick Lansdowne (1937-2008), Signed in Pencil 1959, Never Framed Kept Flat Black-Billed Cuckoo
James Fenwick Lansdowne (1937-2008) Black-Billed Cuckoo 1959
Very rare print from 1959 signed by artist in pencil. A slender, furtive species which appears to be round-shouldered when perched, this is the more norther of the two Canadian cuckoos. Relying on the concealment of dense tangles, it will sit perfectly motionless, and is easily overlooked.
