Red Tailed Hawk
You can find red tailed hawks in every eco-system there is. This raptor will hunt down voles,mice, rabbits, birds, snakes and squirrels. You can find them sitting high in trees and on telephone poles watching for motion on edges of fields. Once the hawk spots its prey it will swoop down and pick it up.
It is common to see red-tailed hawks visit a backyard because of the selection of feeding birds available.
