This small print is definitely relevant for this time of the year - the Dickcissels are singing non-stop around the pasture here and area prairies right now, actually have been since June.  The fun thing I like to refer to Dickcissels is the nick-name that birders like to call it - the "barking dog"!  They do go on and on all day long, even in the heat of the day!
But I like Dickcissels and hearing them lowers my blood pressure and makes me smile!  I'll post a video of one here along our north pasture singing along the east fenceline -

The print "Dickcissel's Song" was done from the original color pencil drawing; this original drawing is now in the permanent collection of the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, Wisconsin. 
"Dickcissel's Song" is a smaller print with ample borders - a signed open edition print and is available from the studio here or other galleries listed on my web site - www.morrisons-studio.com.

Next time you're out in the country, give a listen for the Dickcissels - singing out their name!
