This white-winged fairywren is female: she looks quite different from her male counterpart and doesn't have the white wings but she is still a white-winged fairywren!
Birds are often named after, and known for, the striking, brightly coloured males, which means that the females are so much harder to identify and are often not as well known as the males.
To counter this I have decided to make a series of mini etchings depicting all of the girls! I hope I learn to identify them as I make them and highlight the females of the species.
This is an original dry point etching, inked up by hand and pulled through my printing press on Hahnemulhe cotton rag paper.
This etching is sold unframed and unmatted. Please note, the edition number you will receive will not necessarily be the one pictured.
