CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT of FISH and WILDLIFE PRESS RELEASE: A painting of a pair of California quail has been chosen by a panel of judges as the winning entry in the 2016-2017 California Upland Game Bird Stamp Art Contest. The painting was created by Roberta "Roby" Baer of Redding, a wildlife artist who also won the 2015 - 2016 California Upland Game Bird Stamp Art Contest. Sponsored by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW), the annual contest is held to determine the offical design for the upcoming years California Upland Game Bird Stamp. Artists submitted their own original depiction of California quail. The entries were judged by a panel of experts who were selected for their knowledge in the fields of ornithology, conservation, art and printing. Designs were judged on originality, artistc composition, anatomical accuracy and suitability for reproduction as a stamp and print. The judges cited the anatomical accuracy and the proper habitat represented in the winning painting, and one judge pronounced it a "well-colored image that accurately represents a California quail and will lend itself well to being a stamp image." "I thought that it would be interesting to place the habitat in the forefront of the painting by adding oak leafs and emply acorn shells," said Baer, who researched her painting by observing quail cavorting beside her residence, which adjoins a greenbelt. "Quails are such a cute bird -- there is nothing more adorable than their bobbing topknots when they work their way up a hill."
