Aerial Reunion - Art Print - by R. David Digby - See Larger Image
Weight: 3.00 pounds
Signed & numbered limited edition of 500. The North American Raptor Breeders' Association presents "Aerial Reunion". This is the fourth in a series of five prints. In mid-May, with snow still clinging to the tops of nearby hills, a male and female Merlin are reunited on their breeding territory in central Newfoundland. In this lively print, the jack is delivering a freshly captured Tree Swallow to his insistent mate in one of the graceful aerial food transfers that characterize their courtship. Red Indian Lake is typical Merlin territory in Newfoundland, where these small swift falcons are one of the island's most abundant raptor species. A spruce forrest & hillside "tuckamore" (a thick, stunted spruce scrub) surround the lake, along the foggy shores of which this pair will do much of their hunting. Measures: 22 1/2" x 29".
