Title: American Kestrel

Unlike larger falcons, the “Sparrow Hawk” has adapted to humans and nests even in our largest cities, where it preys chiefly on House Sparrows. In the countryside it takes insects, small birds, and rodents, capturing its prey on the ground rather than in midair like other falcons. The female does most of the incubating and is fed by the male. The male calls as he nears the nest with food; the female flies to him, receives the food, and returns to the nest. After the eggs hatch, the male continues to bring most of the food. The young stay with the adults for a time after fledging, and it is not uncommon to see family parties in late summer.

Richard Sloan, who passed away in 2007, was a world-renowned wildlife illustrator specializing in raptors whose paintings have been featured in several nature publications and exhibited at numerous museums, galleries, and private collections. In the Spring of 1998, The University Of Arizona Press published the book “The Raptors Of Arizona“, a 220 page volume on the birds of prey of the Southwest, featuring 42 Sloan paintings. The handsigned limited edition print available for sale here is a reproduction of Richard Sloan’s original paintings featured in the book.
