This is a red tail hawk I did out of the creative woodworks magazine. I loved the bird and wanted to do it once I seen it. Not sure where he is going yet. The wife really likes him. Many woods used on this bird to give it all the colors. The tail originally called for Purple Heart but it’s a red tail hawk. Why would I use Purple Heart? So I used African Padauk after I did some research and found that the tail is more orange then red. Hope you enjoy and thanks for looking.

This is a very professional piece of work. Your attention to detail and your choice of wood species just top notch.

Beautiful piece of work. Got one of those guys around here. He stakes out a field (one of his hunting grounds) from his perch on the highway high-tension wires .
