Artist's notes:

birds of prey fine art illustrations

I have long been fascinated by owls, eagles, falcons, and other birds of prey. Without a doubt they're one of my favorite subjects. I often see hawks in the skies above my adopted home of the Bay Area. In fact, one of the oddest memories I have is of an immature red-tailed hawk that had killed a pigeon,and was eating in right outside of the Spear Tower in the Financial District.I was lucky enough to see it, and watch it as it casually plucked the meat off the bones of the dead bird, occasionally looking up at the crowd that had gathered to watch the unusual spectacle. When illustrating birds of prey, as with any other bird, it is essential to get the feathers to lay correctly on the body. Understanding how they attach to the wing and the body is critical because if its done wrong the drawing will not successful.I enjoy adding new birds to this gallery every few weeks - but if you'd like to make a suggestions please send me an email!

Information about Birds of Prey:

Birds of Prey - also called raptors - are generally considered to be any bird that that hunts for vertebrates and other birds, doing so primarily while in flight. There are about 500 species that fit it this category living on the planet today. These types of birds tend to have very powerful talons, useful for catching prey and holding on to it, and large powerful beaks which are used to rip and tear the meat from animal bones. Raptors tend to have very keen eyesight and wings that are shaped to allow ease of gliding, soaring and in some cases hovering. Except for owls, all birds of prey are able to store food and regurgitate it later, usually to feed offspring. While several families of birds may be predatory or semi-predatory, only the following are considered true birds of prey: eagles, osprey, kites, kestrels, buzzards, hawks, harriers, vultures, falcons and owls. Birds of prey vary greatly in size; the smallest is the Elf Owl, which is only about 5 inches long, whereas the Andean Condor is the largest with an impressive 11 foot wingspan.
