This limited edition print, from an original fine art watercolour by Chris Spiker, depicts five pink and grey galahs chatting in a tree. "We have several galahs visiting our garden and surrounding open land. The antics they get up to when relating to one another is often humorous and appears to be playful. But they also squabble and peck at one another in order to protect their space on a branch or to be near a mate, or so it seems. While they are also known in Western Australia  as pink and ...

This limited edition print, from an original fine art watercolour by Chris Spiker, depicts Carnaby's black cockatoos feeding on a marri (Corymbia calophylla) tree.

This limited edition print, from an original fine art watercolour by Chris Spiker, depicts two red-tailed black cockatoos playing in Corymbia ficifolia (as known as red-flowering gum). "Unlike most birds, the black cockatoo can be represented in various postures. The one I most like or admire is this one where the male bird throws out the frontal crest, splays the feathers below the lower bill, and takes on the appearance of an Emperor. Each of my paintings is a unique composition and not bas...
