I have been a birdwatcher since my early teens. In fact when I was that age, I really wanted to be an Ornithologist. Birds were my life (OK, I know I was a geek).
I had to do something with the Red Tailed Hawk. To begin with, The Red Tailed is the most common hawk in North America. And where I live (rural Missouri), they are a daily visual treat. They can be found soaring with the wind currents or just sitting on a telephone pole waiting for something to stumble by to eat. I don't think I have been outside for over 15 minutes without observing a Red Tailed.
I hand painted this with three different Zoyas. They were:
- Pepper, a brick red cream
- Jacqueline, an off white nude cream
- Codie, a blacken brown-now discontinued (it was one of my freebees from last Spring's Zoya order)

A Red Tailed Hawk is even on the front of my Sibley bird guide.
So this is the end of this bird tail and until next time, take care...........Terri
