Subject:Print purchased, translation meeded

I bought this print today because I think it is beautiful. I tried Google and iTranslate but neither helped. Any information you can provide would be most appreciated. Please forgive my lack of knowledge.

This by a Japanese artist surnamed Ohno 大野龍溪, the "Oh" to indicate that the O is long rather than short. I. Nagy will be able to give you a reading of the given name 龍溪 as his Japanese is better than mine

The upper line on the back just describes the scene of the painting, small bird in a kind of snow-covered bamboo
