Spotlight on Red-Tailed Hawks

September 29, 2020

The Red-Tailed Hawk is our most common and most recognizable raptor species. But did you know that these winged neighbors of ours have special hunting capabilities such as ‘kiting’ without flapping in mid-air and can see rodents from 100 feet above? Many are year-round residents in our area but in some locations many young Red-Tailed Hawks will disperse from the area that they are born in large numbers once they have matured. We will be joined by Daena Ford of Braddock Bay Raptor Research to hear about the Natal Dispersal of young Red-Tailed Hawks in the Great Lakes region and she will be showing a live Red-Tailed Hawk!
