The national bird of Mexico, this scavenger has probably the most varied diet of any bird of prey. It often accompanies and dominates vultures at fresh kills or carrion and also eats small animals. It is primarily a ground-inhabiting falcon of open prairies, with long legs that enable it to walk and run with ease.
Price includes shipping to continental USA address.

*Artist's proof or AP is a copy of the painting outside of the numbered edition, historically made as a test and reserved for the artist’s own collection or to be shown in gallery, museum shows or given as gifts. Artist proofs were highly sought after by collectors as the images were supposedly better, but with the advent of modern digital printing artist proofs and numbered edition prints are the exact same quality. However, an artist proof remains rarer.
