This morning when I was on my way to work a fellow just like this one flew at eye level right in front of my car.  I am very grateful that his timing was such that there was no collision.  Even though I work in an urban area, there are enough trees, parks and connected green space that red tailed hawks can survive.  I once saw one take down a pigeon right in front of our concert hall – pretty impressive.

Red tails are frequently seen in North America, according to the Bird Lab at Cornell University.  Go to this site for more information, range map, identification tips and habits.

Hawk tattoos range from realistic to symbolic and tribal in nature.
