Chorus Line - Lithograph
Framed version available here.
This piece was created in 1967 for the Animal Kingdom book by The Golden Press.
Three little wood thrushes in a straight row singing - rather, peeping - for their supper. Hungry hatchlings in a synchronized formation worthy of a Broadway musical. An audition for Mother Nature, the Ultimate Talent Judge, who has already made up her mind that in this cast, Thrushdom, only males will sing. When ready to mate, they will sing to attract females and then, from dawn to dusk, sing to defend their territories - with a sound like a flute that ends in a trill. My favorite bird, and Henry David Thoreau's,whose notes affect me like music- singer of 50 different haunting songs. A one-bird musical.
