Tanglewood - Gray Hawk by Anne Peyton
Subject: Gray Hawk
Dimensions (inches): 24 x 16
Medium: Acrylic
Description: 'During the Sonoran Desert summer, the high ‘keeer' call of the Gray Hawk is a familiar sound along riverbeds. Often these small hawks can be seen soaring over the trees looking for prey in the trees and along the fields and scrub on either side. They are unmistakable in the air and command your attention.

'On one of our trips, we found an active nest high in a dying cottonwood. The female was calling but we couldn't see her or any offspring. When the smaller male came back with a small mammal she took the food and came to another dying tree to eat while he stayed at the nest.

'Things are changing for this hawk. As the drought persists in the state these hawks can now be found nesting farther north, and we now find a few wintering over in the state rather than migrating to Central America and South America.'
