Kisra by windfalcon Kisra by windfalcon
A gift for Mary-Beth at Horizon Wings. This is Kisra, a 12-year-old female American Kestrel. Kisra lost her wing 11 years ago due to striking a window. She was the first raptor I held at the center, and her patience has taught me a lot.


Watercolor on hot-press Fabriano, 5 X 7 inches.

She looks sweet, but sad. I like the saturated browns around her neck; makes it pop out more.

OMG That would suck to only have one wing. She would have to be patient to live life like that.
