Artist's Description

Taken in Marana, Az with Canon sx10is

Red-tailed hawk is the most variable and widespread north American raptor. It is equally at home in mountains, deserts,prairies, and farmlands. A year round resident in most of the United States, the RT is the hawk most likey to be seen along highways. Utility poles and fence posts have become the accustomed perch of these raptors.

Coming in a huge variety of colors and morphs. Hunting mostly rodents from perches or in the air.

While searching for prey, these hawks will hover in place, sometimes kiting, or hanging motionless in the wind, as it scours the land.

VOICE a distinctive call, a harsh, descending keeeeeeer

Fun fact: Most of the screeches you hear in bird movies belong to the red-tail hawk.
