IMAGE REF: AUD035
 

The original water-colour has no background, it just shows the buzzard, the hare and an agama lizard (that found its way into Plate 386, the White Heron) on an otherwise blank sheet. It is interesting to note that the added background depicts a saw mill which was Audubon's primary occupation and one which eventually bankrupted him. Is the print background derived from Audubon's sketch of his own ill-fated venture?
