Red-tailed Hawk

Red-tailed Hawk
The Red-tailed Hawk measures 18 to 25 inches at maturity.  Common in farmlands, plains, deciduous forest, and open country.  Breeds throughout North America. Usually 2 o3 white eggs with brown spots in a bulky nest in a tall tree, often on a rock ledge surrounded by large rocks. This buteo hunts it’s prey as it soars over open farmlands or prairie, or from a perch from any high vantage point. The main prey of the Red-tailed Hawk is small rodents.
