Of the Red-shouldered Buzzard Audubon writes, "This bird is one of the most noisy of its genus, during spring especially, when it would be difficult to appraoch the skirts of woods bordering a large plantation without hearing its discordant shrill notes, ka-hee, ka-hee, as it is seen sailing in rapid circles at a very great elevation."
Print is sold matted with antique colored archival matting and backing. Included with the antique print is the original text as available, a copy of Audubon's Preface and the Subscribers list from the related installment.
