Charley Harper (American, 1922–2007)

“For centuries, the neotropical migrants in this picture have shuttled between winter homes in the tropical rainforest and nesting sites in our woodlands. Now their populations are plummeting. Why? Habitat destruction. Down There? Up Here? Is your favorite songster in this flock? . . . Are silent springs forthcoming? Remember the canary in the coal mine?”—Charley Harper
