Keith Hansen in Bolinas
Keith Hansen in his Bolinas studio. Keith is friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic birder who also happens to be a talented artist. His studio is not only the space where he paints, it also serves as retail space, bird observatory, and ad hoc museum. He is currently working on a massive project, identifying and illustrating he birds of the Sierra and he showed us one of the panels from that project (above.)
Keith Hansen's big window looks out on a courtyard filled with bird feeders, fountains, and plants - and birds. There's a constant hum of birdie activity there. He's hooked up a tiny video camera to a scope and very little prodding, he'll replay videos of birds who have visited the space recently. This 2 to 3 minute video shows Keith in his studio, using the set up:
