The clutch of three to five eggs is large for a Buteo hawk and may result from a fluctuating food supply. Ferruginous Hawks, which feed mainly on prairie dogs and ground squirrels, lay more eggs when prey abounds, fewer eggs in years when rodent populations decrease. They also take grasshoppers, birds, and lizards.

*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.
