The majestic raptors of North America are artfully displayed in this premium wall poster. Illustrated by the world's premiere bird artist, this work features illustrations of 32 species of raptors, including the black vulture, the snail kite, the ferruginous hawk, the American kestrel, and the peregrine falcon. Juveniles, adults, and regional populations of each species are shown in relative scale, both perched and in flight – to give the viewer an impression of the differences in sizes. This splendid piece of artwork makes an ideal gift for both birdwatchers interested in identifying raptors and casual observers alike.
