Air Supremacy - Ferruginous Hawk
20 inches wide x 30 inches high

“Ferruginous Hawks are the largest species of hawk in North America. They are powerful birds and are known for their aggressive and strong-willed behavior. It takes a fierce hawk to survive in the open prairies and grasslands. However, they continue to struggle as a species because of our insistence on altering their natural habitat. Not only has their landscape been greatly changed due to agriculture, but their prey base of ground squirrels and prairie dogs has been diminished as well. It is imperative that unaltered open space is left for these magnificent birds or they will someday be forever lost.”
