The Prairie Falcon is usually found in places far from water, while the Peregrine is nearly always found near a river or lake. The Prairie Falcon's diet consists mainly of birds, which it pursues on the wing but usually captures on or near the ground. Where elevated perches are available, the Prairie Falcon will spend a considerable amount of time watching for prey. In open country without high perches, the style of hunting is to fly low above the ground and flush prey.
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.
