Description The green turaco is a species of turaco, a group of tree-dwelling birds. They are found in forests of West and Central Africa, ranging from Senegal east to Congo and south to northern Angola. Turacos make up the bird family Musophagidae, which literally means banana -eaters. These birds have unique pigments giving them their bright green and red feathers. As their name suggests, turacos enjoy eating bananas and can become very tame as they accept hand-fed pieces of banana, grapes, or papaya. These gregarious birds do not migrate, but move in packs or family groups of up to10. Turacos are medium-sized arboreal birds (10 -16 inches long) endemic to sub-Saharan African countries, where they live in forests, woodland and savanna.

I.M. Spadecaller, Clearwater Member Since March 2010 Artist Statement Welcome to Spadecaller's Galleries.
About the Artist: Spadecaller (Matt Schwartz) is the pseudonym he uses for his visual art, writing, poetry, and video creations; initially, the name came about by his direct approach on subjects that focus on humanitarian issues that impact our world today. He's known to call a spade a spade.
In the late 1950’s, Spadecaller’s formal training in traditional oil painting techniques commenced. He was eight years old, when he started private painting lessons. Through considerable personal sacrifice, his mother, who has since passed away, nurtured his artistic talents and provided him with many of the tools and circumstances to launch his creative journey. Memories of art exhibitions in New York City that his mother introduced him to continue to motivate his quest for excellence. Spadecaller attended The School of Visual Arts in New York City (1970-71), and during the 70's up until the late 80's, he exhibited acrylic and oils in Montreal and New York. As a realist painter, he strives to capture the beauty of nature and the soul of humankind. Due to the onset of chronic illness in the late nineties and with the advent of image editing software, he turned to creating digital hand painted images, mixed media and photographic art - fusing these into an art form worthy of the same gratification that he had once found in oils.
