Monday Mural: another Doty bird

I found another bird mural by Edward Doty.  Just love how he presents them with such sentient awareness.  Can't tell you what kind of bird this is, but I'm pretty sure the real plant is a cotoneaster.  And the bird is sitting on a New Zealand tea plant featured in Friday's post.  I'm guessing the mountain in the background is Mt. Tamalpais which is part of the bay skyline  and found in Marin County.

  2. very bright and vivid mural ... sort of disorienting that a bird on a tree branch is so close the sidewalk.

  10. Very cool mural. Maybe it's a red-tail hawk. There looks to be a bit of red on the tail that's visible.

  13. Wonderful bird! We just visited California and there are so many murals there! I think Venice Beach along has more murals than the state of Virginia.
