Trumpter Swan

Close to extinction in the 1930s, the trumpter swan now numbers over three thousand individuals as a result of conservation efforts. Seen at times as far south as New Orleans, it is a very shy bird for its size and needs wilderness in order to survive.

Everglades Kite

Found only in Florida and primarily in the Everglades, this unique bird feeds exclusively on the apple snail. It is interesting to watch it transfer the snail from beak to claw and back again while in flight. The bird is endangered because of the slow eliminatation of its only food source and today, they number about 400.

Great Egret

The egret is one of the most beautiful of the herons when it is in its breeding plumage. It is a solitary feeder, consuming fish, frogs, crayfish and snakes in the shallow water of the marshes.

Great Blue Heron

A majestic bird in flight or on the ground, the "great blue" exists from Alaska to Florida. Its nest, consisting of a platform of twigs with finer material as a liner, is usually built in trees but may also be found in reed beds or upon the ground.


Mort Solberg
Solberg adds, "To paint what you see is one thing but to feel what you see and to be able to paint that impression is something else again." The artist has created a distinctive, timeless style by contrasting loose and flowing forms with sharp edges and tight definition. His interest in art began early and he pursued it through the years at the West Technical High School and the Cleveland Institute of Art. Following graduation, Solberg entered the world of commercial art, first working at an art studio, then for American Greetings. He was content to work successfully in that field until a job as art director for another card copy brought him west. There he was inspired to explore photography, eventually returning to painting with a new point of view and a vital new approach. The result has been art that has been lauded across the continent. His paintings are in the permanent collections of the National Gallery of Art and the American Bicentennial Gallery, among others. His honors include a purchase award from the National Watercolor Societyís top award, and an award of merit from the Society of Animal Artists. Solberg is a member of the American Watercolor Society and the National Watercolor Society. The result is also art that has been lauded across the continent. His paintings are in the permanent collections of the National Gallery of Art and the American Bicentennial Gallery, among others.
