Wildlife paintings, portraits & pet portraits by New Zealand Artist Karen Neal


Acrylic Box Canvas (8x8in)

The New Zealand Falcon or Kārearea is New Zealand's only endemic falcon and the only remaining bird of prey endemic to New Zealand. Other common names for the bird are Bush Hawk and Sparrow Hawk. We often seem them flying around in Marlborough, particularly at Rarangi and also the vineyards, where food for them is plentiful.

With thanks to Brian Tapp for the beautiful reference photo, of Monty who was an introduced falcon, but flies freely in the Awatere Valley.
