Artist Gooitzen van der Meer has captured the masked wood swallow with incredible accuracy in this amazing watercolour print.
The masked wood swallow (Artamus personatus) occurs over most of Australia, except the far south-west, north-east and Tasmainia, and is more common in the west of the country. It resides in flocks of up to 100 birds, which may also include the white-browed wood swallow (A. superciliosus). The masked wood swall grows to 190 millimetres long and breeds from August to December, laying its eggs in a shallow nest of twigs, grass and stems.
