The male Ferruginous calls incessantly in spring, at a rate of 90 to 150 times a minute. One is reported to have called for three solid hours. This tiny tropical owl is rare and local in the United States, and the small population around Tucson, Arizona, is a great attraction to bird-watchers.
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.
