Duck Stamp: We have a 2013 winner!



This beautiful, touching painting of a Common Goldeneye by Robert Steiner of San Francisco was chosen yesterday as the winner of the 2012 Federal Duck Stamp Art Contest, and will appear on the 2013-2014 duck stamp, which goes on sale next June.

Birdcouple LOVES this piece of art - the painting captures its subject perfectly - and obviously the judges did too.

More on the contest, the 2nd and 3rd place winners, and the duck stamp program is available right here on the Fish & Wildlife Service website right here.

Wait a MINUTE! Have you purchased your 2012-2013 duck stamp yet? Please do it, and preserve some habitat.

Tomorrow is Oct. 1. The ducks will be here soon...

The level of detail an artist can convey with a brush and paint is astounding.
