Paul Margocsy is known primarily for his watercolour paintings of Australian birds. After research into ornithology, and through his own self-taught efforts and experimentation, he began to develop the skills he is admired for today. His paintings are so lifelike that people have said that the viewer sees the bird, rather than the painting. He is internationally recognised as one of Australia's best wildlife artists and his art is collected both in Australia and internationally.
