The Prairie Falcon preys on birds and small mammals in the open, dry country of western North America. Flying low it watches for smaller birds that flush out of the grass or bushes. It relies on its ability to accelerate quickly into a high speed pursuit to over take its quarry. It has amazing agility and it twists and turns untill its prey is out maneuvered.

The Blue Jay is known for its loud harsh cry. However, It also has a soft melody and it mimics the songs and cries of many other birds. This inteligent creature has also been known to use the cry of a hawk to scare the competition away from a food source.
This aluminum sculpture is mounted on a natural Juniper branch. The base is arranged to give the appearance of the birds in thier natural environment. The Priarie Falcon on this piece has a full compliment of feathers. The stones mounted on the base have petroglyphs etched on them representing wind, water, sun, wolf and deer. It also has an obsidian arrowhead nestled in the stones and tufts of sculpted grass. This sculpture has been displayed at the Wild Life Prairie State Park in Illinois. Like all of Daniel's sculptures, this is a hand crafted one of a kind original. Purchase includes a letter of authenticity signed by the artist.
