Robert bateman Call Of The Wild Bald Eagle

" CALL OF THE WILD " - BALD EAGLE
Robert Bateman

950 s/n Limited Edition Edition
19.25 " x 25.5"
$395


" The Bald Eagle is a bird found in the kind of countryside I especially like. It may
be found in a variety of habitats, but the common factor is a sense of space, privacy
and the presence of water. Luckily, there are still large areas of North America that
are in this category. Unfortunately, in the last few decades this was not enough

The use of agricultural pesticides, especially DDT, caused contamination even in
remote areas. Entire watersheds were suddenly polluted, and the pesticides were
concentrated in the larger fish which form an important part of the eagle's diet.
This caused infertility and a weakening of the eggshells. In a few years, the
eagles were wiped out in much of their former territory. Now that DDT has been
banned, there is evidence that they are coming back to these areas.


In this painting I have shown this bird in a dynamic calling pose. Although
there is a fierce, bold thrust to the visual image, if you could hear the actual
cry, you would probably be disappointed. It is a rather faint, high-pitched
"chittering" noise. I have used the angular thrust of the dead tree to add
to the force of the bird. In the far distance is a flock of gulls hinting at the
proximity of water, which is the inevitable component of his habitat"
