Least Tern Mating Ritual Original Oil Painting

Barbara Fallenbaum

Males bring a small fish to a group of terns and several terns then follow him in the air, gliding and then landing with stiff wings.  The male then present the fish to the female, who usually consumes it.  This courtship feeding continues well into the nesting period and during incubation.  Saw this guy land on Treasure Island.

  • The painting measures 12” x 16”, with frame 13.25" x 17.25"  x 2" deep.  
  • The frame is solid wood and custom for this painting.  We finish each one with an undercoated metallic glaze and a nice cream crackle top coat, giving an elegant coastal feel.  Each frame is a unique piece of art by itself!
