Title: Zone-tailed Hawk

The Zone-tailed Hawk is a lightly built hawk with slim wings and a fairly long tail. Grayish black, with black-and-white barred undersides and a blackish tail with white bands, this hawk has similar coloration to the Turkey Vulture. Forages by flying slowly and low over treetops, then drops onto prey from low heights. Prey consists mostly of lizards, small mammals, and birds. Commonly found in Cottonwood riparian corridors, upland desert, foothills, and mountain pine forest, especially where there is uneven terrain such as cliffs, mesas, or canyons.

Richard Sloan, who passed away in 2007, was a world-renowned wildlife illustrator specializing in raptors whose paintings have been featured in several nature publications and exhibited at numerous museums, galleries, and private collections. In the Spring of 1998, The University of Arizona Press published the book “The Raptors of Arizona“, a 220 page volume on the birds of prey of the Southwest, featuring 42 Sloan paintings. The hand signed limited edition print available for sale here is an authorized reproduction of Richard Sloan’s original paintings also featured in the book.
