THE 2019 VIRGINIA MIGRATORY WATERFOWL CONSERVATION STAMP
The 2019 Virginia Migratory Waterfowl Conservation Stamp features a single Northern Shoveler Drake in a marsh setting. The artwork, entitled “Spoonbill Drake” is the creation of Virginia artist Guy Crittenden, and is his seventh winning entry in the Virginia competition. Northern Shovelers, often called “Spoonbills” by sportsmen, are small dabbling ducks that are found wintering in good numbers on marshes, ponds and impoundments throughout Virginia. “In this painting, I intended to show some of the beautiful feathering of the Drake Spoonbill in a realistic and simple composition. The contrast of the rusty red flanks, white breast and green head, combined with the oversized scoop bill, makes this bird an easily recognized species in the field. They are fast and acrobatic flyers as well.
