1984 Print Tasmanian Native Hen Narkie Bird Lansdowne - ORIGINAL BD1


This is an original 1984 color print of three rails: the Tasmanian Native Hen (upper center), also called "Narkies"; the San Cristobal Gallinule (middle right), a rare bird --the only known specimen was obtained in 1929 on San Cristobal Island in the Solomon Islands; and the Samoan Wood Rail (bottom), a small flightless rail, probably extinct, no record of it since 1873, known only from the Solomon Islands.

Period Paper is pleased to offer a group of lovely color prints of birds of the family Rallidae. Commonly called rails, they are small-to-medium sized birds which are mostly associated with marshes or wetland habitats.
