This handsome and conspicuous hawk is a common sight in south Texas, where it is usually seen perched along highways on telephone poles, fence posts, or dead trees. It mainly preys on rabbits, but this bird is an opportunist, gathering in flocks with other hawks at brush fires to feed on rodents, rabbits, lizards, and insects driven out by the flames. Like related hawks, it rides the air currents on motionless wings, often soaring to great heights

*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.
