I’m privileged to see my painting of a migrating Sharp-shinned Hawk featured on the cover of the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory publication, Pacific Raptor. If you are not aware of the observatory or the work they do, you can find out more at their website –

Thanks to my good friends Allen Fish and Teresa Ely for the opportunity to share my work with the Golden Gate Raptor community!

Support Red-tailed Hawk Research!

Interested in supporting Red-tailed Hawk research? Purchase these items from the shop!

I’ve collaborated with some folks to form a research project aimed at furthering our understanding of the Red-tailed Hawk. This involves a robust effort to trap these birds on the wintering grounds and outfit them with tracking devices. By doing so, we hope to gain insights into migratory connectivity as well as answer some long standing questions about population assignment related to their appearance (in other words, to what subspecies they belong). The work is foundational to a large effort to understand regional plumage variation at the genomic level, and the evolution of the distribution and patterns we see in this species.

We are raising money for transmitters, and we need your help! Please visit the Red-tailed Hawk website to find out how you can contribute!

Original watercolor painting available for purchase – Short-tailed Shearwaters (Ardenna tenuirostris)

by Bryce W. Robinson

I have made another original painting available for purchase – this 18×24″ watercolor painting of three Short-tailed Shearwater (Ardenna tenuirostris).

I painted this in 2018 for a paper I wrote, Unusual foraging observations associated with seabird die-offs in Alaska. Robinson et al. 2018 in Marine Ornithology. This painting also currently sits as the banner logo on the Ornithologi website.

If you love seabirds or shearwaters and are interested in this painting, you can purchase it in the shop.
