A taxidermy display cabinet with Common Buzzards (Buteo buteo) and a Sparrowhawk (Accipiter nisus) by Rowland Ward (1848-1912)

 

Late 19th/early 20th century, the sparrowhawk possibly added later

Comprised of a pair of full mount adult Common Buzzards, one stood upon a large faux rock overlooking another bird below with a rabbit prey underfoot, above perched upon a centrally mounted branch a full mount adult female Sparrowhawk, possibly added later, all mounted amidst a natural setting of faux rocks, branches, fauna and heather, enclosed within a typical large five-glass table display case with a green taped frame.
