Monday Mural - Waterbirds

Another mural found in Denmark, Western Australia during my December holiday.
This was in a small alley and difficult to photograph without trespassing into the house next door...

I presume the inspiration for the mural came from the waterbirds that populate the Wilson Inlet in Denmark which opens out to the sea  - Seagulls, Spoonbill bird, Black swans and Australian pelicans are some of those birds depicted here.

I couldn't spot a name for the artist/s.

    1. They belong in that area, so it was fit to have them in a mural. Thanks Camera Girl.

    1. It is quite nice that country towns are getting the mural treatment too!
      I was disappointed I couldn't see the name of the artist and I've looked online and nothing either...

  8. The mural cheers up a dull wall and lets you know what to look for along the coast. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

  9. Massive.
    I'm sure this one could double up as a brochure about the birds of the area. :)
