Additional Information

The Pintail winters all over Texas. It is most often found in puddle duck habitat - shallow lakes or ponds - but it also uses rivers, creeks, and salt marshes along the coast.  The legs of the pintail arelocated close to the center of its body - like most dabbling ducks - enabling it to walk easily, and it feeds on waste grain in fields.

This buoyant swimmer rides high in the water with its head up and alert and with the male's needle-like tail at a jaunty angle.  In water, the pintail feeds by "tipping up" and paddling its feet for balance.  It stretches its long neck to feed on seeds, roots and shoots in the muddy bottom.

This image is from the Charles Beckendorf Texas Wildlife book. The original was an acrylic painting on canvas (1992) and the size is approximately 14 X 11 inches.  The total edition size of this print is 500.

Color Reproduction

Beckendorf color reproductions are developed using four color process printing on fine white paper. This advanced technique utilizes separate color plates for each of the primary colors, plus black. High-resolution digital scans and special process inks are utilized to yield beautiful, accurate reproductions.

About the Artist - Charles Beckendorf

Charles grew up in Mathis, Texas, where he had the opportunity to spend hours on large ranches. Generous land owners gave him permission to wander freely over their ranches and he observed creatures in their natural surroundings. He developed a lifelong love of nature, whether it be in the tiniest of flowers or the largest of animals. It was at this time that he became a true naturalist.
