Wilson's Storm Petrel and Whale Oil Bubble


Wilson's Storm Petrel and Whale Oil Bubble

from 35.00

Painted by me during my time spent living in the Antarctic.  The Wilson's Storm Petrel is a tiny bird with a huge habitat, stretching from Southern Oregon all the way to the Antarctic, but you may never have seen one unless you've been out on the ocean.  They habitually "dance" on the water, dabbling their feet to stir up tiny creatures feeding near the top of the water.  Because it looks like they're dancing, they are called "Bailarines" in South America (ballerinas); sailors called them "Jesus Birds" because it looks like they're walking on water.  I saw them feeding on whale grease and oil bubbles left in the wake of whale blows while I was out in a tiny rubber raft on the Southern Sea in the Antarctic.
