H-43 Turkey Vultures

Color Reproduction | By Charles Beckendorf

  • Size
    14" x 11"

Additional Information

The turkey vulture is a magnificent soaring bird.  It can move for miles without a wingbeat.  It is not common over the Trans-Pecos and Panhandle, but it can be seen soaring over all of Texas.

At times these vultures can be seen in groups perched on barren tree limbs, utility lines or fence posts.

To conserve energy, their body temperature drops at night.  In the early morning or on a cool day they may be seen sitting with their wings unfolded, soaking up the warm sun.

This image is from the Charles Beckendorf Texas Wildlife book. The original was an acrylic painting on canvas (1992) and the size is approximately 14 X 11 inches.  The total edition size of this print is 500.

This is a part of the Texas Wildlife Art Prints Collection.

Color Reproduction

Beckendorf color reproductions are developed using four color process printing on fine white paper. This advanced technique utilizes separate color plates for each of the primary colors, plus black. High-resolution digital scans and special process inks are utilized to yield beautiful, accurate reproductions.

About the Artist - Charles Beckendorf

Charles grew up in Mathis, Texas, where he had the opportunity to spend hours on large ranches. Generous land owners gave him permission to wander freely over their ranches and he observed creatures in their natural surroundings. He developed a lifelong love of nature, whether it be in the tiniest of flowers or the largest of animals. It was at this time that he became a true naturalist.
