Harris Hawk

Thanks to all the viewers and bidders

Harris Hawk
This painting is 6 x 8", oil on board, unframed


Harris hawks are found most abundantly in southern Texas, southeast New Mexico and south and central Arizona. They have been reported in Nevada, Utah and Oklahoma and have been reintroduced along the Colorado River in California. If you live elsewhere and think you have spotted a Harris hawk, it could well be true. Because they are popular in falconry, "escapees" can be found just about anywhere. The Harris hawk was named for Edward Harris, a friend of Audubon.
