Special Feature: Birds of Prey

Red-Tail Hawk

by Antoneah Armour, age 13

Red-tailed hawks are often seen flying across the sky looking down on fields and farmlands in search of prey. They have white chests with dark streaks on their bellies, and reddish-orange fan-shaped tails. Females are slightly larger than males and can be up to 25 inches tall. Their wingspan reaches out to about five feet. Red- tailed hawks are easily trained as capable hunters. Therefore, they are the majority of hawks captured for falconry in the United States.
