Levant sparrowhawk studies-video based

The levant sparrowhawk a migrant raptor to south eastern Europe, one of the most handsome to me.
 Though it is quite common, there is very little known about his distribution and biology.
Thanks to a friend of mine wo was able to get some video of this bird,(of poor quality but containg enough visual informations )I managed to create a series of  studies of both sexes.
It seems that except of bird guide illustrations, there are no other painted images of this species to be found.
I did  also several small paintings based on these studies during the last years, and hope to make more in the future.
Attached , b/w studies based on video footage, and more images will follow soon..
