Dive - Peregrine Falcon by Heather Ward

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

The peregrine falcon is the fastest of all animals, and it wouldn’t do to have her just sitting there. When the falcon hunts, it flies high overhead, looking for prey. Then it folds in its wings and dives, headfirst, and knocks out its unsuspecting dinner.

This high-speed dive is, unfortunately, the reason for the most common injury to wild falcons – they cannot see power lines and crash right into them, resulting in severe wing injuries and sometimes electrocution. A portion of sales will go to The Wildlife Center of New Mexico for wildlife rehabilitation.

Drawn in charcoal on Strathmore smooth bristol paper, 2009.
