Once kept as a pet by Audubon after rescuing a fledgling from a storm, the American Kestrel (Falco sparverius) is a small but powerful bird known to feed on songbirds as well as insects.
Accurate representation inspired by Audubon’s print layout. Sized to match Harvell edition prints from the double elephant folio edition. Read Audubon’s journal about his encounters.
Edition of 120 signed and numbered prints, part of the “Resurrecting Audubon’s ‘Birds of America”. Specimen provided by Denver Museum of Nature and Science. Photograph by Lindsey Wohlman
