A Red-tailed Hawk focuses in on his prey in Tualatin, Oregon.


Red-tailed Hawks are one of the most widespread birds of prey in North America, renowned for their keen eyesight, which enables them to spot a meal from a mile away. These raptors take their name from their striking russet-red tail, which is especially vivid in adult birds. They exhibit incredible adaptability, thriving in varied environments from deserts to forests and even adapting to urban settings. With a wingspan that can reach up to 56 inches, these formidable hunters are a symbol of both power and grace in the avian world.
