Painting by the ornithological artist Louis Agassiz Fuertes (1874-1927) depicting birds and mammals that supposedly thwart conservation efforts. They are: 1. Common (American) crow (Corvus brachyrhynchos), 2. Cooper's hawk (Accipiter cooperii), 3. Goshawk (a.k.a. Northern goshawk, Accipiter gentilis), 4. Sharp-shinned hawk (Accipiter striatus), 5. Great horned owl (Bubo virginianus), 6. Weasel (exact species unknown, perhaps a least weasel, Mustela nivalis), 7. Eastern gray squirrel (Sciurus carolinensis), 8. Red fox (Vulpes vulpes), and 9. feral cat. This image was created to record the game bird activities of the New York State Conservation Commission.
