Winter Elm American Kestrel – 14 3/4″ x 33″ – 950 Edition Signed and Numbered Paper Prints
“The kestrel is our smallest falcon which formerly bore the name of sparrow hawk. He is not much bigger than a well-built robin, but he is a fast, fierce hunter. One of the most widespread hawks, he may be seen in southern swamps, northern forests or wide-open plains. He has adapted to man’s presence and helps man with pest control. He is most noticeable in winter perched on bare trees or wires. “This scene inspired me because the strong, rhythmic lines of the elm branches divide the snowy hillside into interesting white shapes.” – Robert Bateman
