Gloss:
Audubon assembled this image by pasting together drawings made early in his career with one produced after years of studying and painting birds. His artistic progress can be seen by comparing the stiff image of a hawk in the lower right, drawn about 1809, with the more lively goshawk above, drawn about 1830.
