Amazing Red-Tailed hawk

 Soaring HighIf you see a beautiful bird with a red tail it might not be a cooper hawk but it is a Red-tailed Hawk. The red tailed hawk lives in Rose Canyon. It helps our in environment by eating rodents like mice and rats. I lives in tall trees like sycamore and oak trees.

What does a Red-tailed Hawk looks like? It always has a red tail and many more earth colors like brown. It weighs about 1.5 to 3.5 pounds and 2 to 3.5 feet. It has a sharp beak and sharp talons like claws fro grabbing its prey. The red tailed hawk a very colorful birds that makes them handsome.

How does it get its food and how does it kill it? It flies around in circles in the air and looks for it prey. When it find a creature it swoops down silently at 120 miles per hour and grabs it, puts in its nests, and eats it.

What about red tailed hawk’s life cycle?  The red tailed hawk lays its eggs and it waits for a long time for the babies to hatch. When finally the eggs hatch  they come out like tiny little birds called eyas. They waddle around then the red tailed hawk gets a mouse and brings it home for the eyas. After a few months they are old enough to learn to fly and hunt themselves. Then when they are almost one the fly away and live by themselves.  That is the life cycle of a red tailed hawk.
