Except for its tail bands, this long-winged black hawk bears a superficial resemblance to the larger, nonpredatory Turkey Vulture. This resemblance is thought to deceive small birds and other prey, who allow it to approach. Then, without warning, this supposed vulture makes its catch!

*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.
