Wildlife conservation may seem like a modern concept, but a century ago, the United States and Canada were already working together to preserve and protect their shared migratory bird populations. The Migratory Birds Convention, signed in 1916 by these two neighbors, stands as a groundbreaking milestone in the history of wildlife conservation. It's enforced by Canada's Migratory Birds Convention Act (MBCA, 1917) and America's Migratory Birds Treaty Act (MBTA, 1918), both of which protect species, nesting sites and eggs from unregulated hunting and commercial activities

Today, the Migratory Birds Convention remains a keystone of wildlife management in North America which celebrates its centennial in 2016. To mark the treaty's 100th year, the Migratory Birds Convention Series of stunningly colorful songbirds brings us four of the keystone species that have benefited from its mission with exquisite designs that feature each bird in its natural habitat. The four Migratory Birds in this program include:

    Mountain Bluebird
    American Avocet
    American Goldfinch
    Pileated Woodpecker

    + Migratory Birds Complete 4-Coin Collection

Canada 2016 Migratory Birds Convention Series #4 - Pileated Woodpecker $20 Pure Silver Proof with Color outer color boxA Vividly Colored Original Work of Art!
The design by Canadian wildlife artist Claudio D’Angelo features an intricately engraved portrait of a pileated woodpecker (Dryocopus pileatus) in a forest setting. The side-profile view offers a sense of the bird’s large size as it takes flight on broad wings, with feathers splayed in a dramatic fashion. Vibrant hues naturally draw the eye to the red crest atop its head, which offers a gorgeous splash of color above the black and white stripes that run down its neck and re-appear along its flight feathers. Rising up in the engraved background is a mighty maple tree, where large chiseled holes in the bark provide ample evidence of the woodpecker’s feeding activity before its majestic flight.
