PRESENTS: "RED TAILED HAWK"

BY: CHARLES FRACE

FOURTH ISSUE IN THE COLLECTION TITLED SOARING MAJESTY

Soaring on a thermal draft above a craggy mountainside, a Red-tailed hawk-keen-eyed master of the wind-hangs motionless, about to land upon a lofty, spare branched tree. As it wheels and glides above its forest home, its splendid russet tail glows luminously in the light of the distant sun.

In celebration of this master of the wind, acclaimed wildlife artist Charles Frace presents a vivid portrait of the bird in "Red-Tailed Hawk" Plate Four in the Soaring Majesty series of limited-edition collector's plates, produced under the hallmark of W.S. George.

One of the largest and most familiar hawks, the Red-tailed can be seen throughout North American, soaring above mountains and coasting on updrafts over rolling plains. It hunts from high, steadfastly hanging immobile in the wind, and then swooping swiftly when it sights its prey. Red-tailed hawks feed primarily on rodents, playing an important role in the ecological chain. But small featd and scaled creatures that turn their backs on a meal-minded hawk also fall within its varied range of prey.

This gorgeous plate number is: 1830A. It measures about 8-1/2 inches in diameter and is banded in 22-karat gold.

The plate is in MINT condition. It comes with the Certificate, pamphlet and original box.

A lovely collectible plate for the bird of prey lover.
