Dr. Bird (Swallow-tail Humming Bird)

Dr. Bird (Swallow-tail Humming Bird)My aunt who was opening a Jamaican restaurant wanted a series of paintings to represent the Jamaican theme of her restaurant. This acrylic painting is one of the ones in a series I painted for her.

The doctor bird or swallow-tail humming-bird, is one of the most outstanding of the 320 species of hummingbirds. It lives only in Jamaica. These birds’ beautiful feathers have no counterpart in the entire bird population and they produce iridescent colours characteristic only of that family. In addition to these beautiful feathers, the mature male has tow long tails which stream behind him when he flies.
