Product Description

Details

Limited, high quality, archival Giclee print of Gyrfalcons in flight. From left to right, a juvenile gray morph, adult gray morph, and an adult white morph. Original Gouache painting by Bryce W. Robinson.

Bryce W. Robinson works with The Peregrine Fund in Western Alaska focused on studying the Gyrfalcon. He is also an artist, and draws the birdlife that he encounters in his travels. He views illustration as an extension of his study, aimed at focusing on both the visual details and behaviors of his subjects. Illustrations are done using a clay-based colored pencil on smooth surface bristol board. The largest falcon in the world, the Gyrfalcon breeds in arctic and subarctic regions of the northern hemisphere. It preys mostly on large birds, pursuing them in breathtakingly fast and powerful flight.

For more than three decades, The Peregrine Fund gathered information on the behavior, nesting habits, migration patterns, and diet of the Gyrfalcon. Traveling on foot, by kayak, helicopter, sea boat, and even dogsled, biologists gathered data on Gyrfalcons and their prey in Greenland. This research helped to increase our understanding of these beautiful birds of prey. 8 x 10 Matted
