Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
Named for its habit of pecking at its meal, the white-breasted nuthatch (Sitta carolinensis) is a bundle of energy that thinks nothing of creeping down a tree headfirst, or hanging upside down from a vertical branch! The fifth and final coin in the Birds Among Nature’s Colours series captures its beauty in stunning engraved detail amid the deep green hues of Canada’s boreal forest.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Derek C. Wicks features a precision-engraved portrait of a female white-breasted nuthatch (Sitta carolinensis). This little songbird is positioned in a way that offers a side profile view of its facial features as it lifts its long bill upwards; meanwhile, an overhead view of its back and wing plumage reveals a patterned appearance that is artfully conveyed by the detailed engraving. Selective colour recreates the effect of sunlight alternately illuminating and casting shadows along the needled branch of a white spruce (Picea glauca), where a cone provides a sense of the nuthatch’s size.

A beautifully artistic and meaningful gift for birdwatchers, nature lovers and art appreciators alike.
