Crested Bunting

Spiky upright crest distinguishes this large bunting from similar species. Male is glossy black with bright chestnut wings. Female is streaky dirt-brown with slightly duller wings. A hill specialist, often found on rocky, bushy hillsides and terraced fields. Generally in pairs or small flocks. Short song begins with a few buzzy notes and ends with mellow whistling. Call is hard “chik.

My most recent piece ‘An Féar Gortach’ / The Hungry Grass based on the old Irish folklore. A cursed patch of grass, that caused an insatiable sense of hunger and weariness upon anyone who walked over it. Some folk took small pieces of bread in their pockets in case they stood on the hungry grass. #irishfolklore #folklore #irishart #irishartist #illustration #folkhorror #irishillustrator
