Birdland: Wild And Graceful

Red-tails are the most common hawk in North America, and can be spotted sailing over fields, in woods, and gazing down from roadside poles. Red-tail Hawks can often be recognized by their telltale red tails. However juveniles, like this one, don’t have red tails until they are about a year old. They can also be identified by their dark wingtips and the bars on their wings. This raptor was photographed in the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge in New Mexico.
