Where is the Red-tailed Hawk?
We are often asked at TRC how to find those amazing raptors out in the wild. We thought we'd share a good example of why they are hard to find, in part due to plumage that helps them blend in to their surroundings.
Here is a photo taken this past weekend by TRC staff. The owners of the
home at the bottom of the photo asked that just the roof be shown, for
their privacy. Can you see the hatch-year (juvenile) red-tailed hawk in
the photo? Scroll down for some help!
