Harris's Hawk" watercolor 5"x7" $65

I listened to the Vermont Institute of Natural Science's bird handler and watched them lay prey for this Harris's Hawk. At lightening speed and ten feet above the ground it flew to center stage and up to the hand of it's handler. It's deep rich color and agility was mesmerizing. I sat with my watercolors in the audience and made this sketch. I saw many large raptor so close I felt like I could touch them.
