Red-tailed Hawk

Buteo jamaicensis

Description:

Red-tailed hawk atop lightpost. It was dining on a mockingbird, whose partner was protesting raucously and diving at the hawk, who skipped with its prey to another lightpost.

Habitat:

Usually forest with adjacent open country.

Notes:

This one had spent the entire summer of 2010 circling over Flushing. I spotted him many, many times.

There are many trees and open green spaces in Flushing, but I was still surprised that this hawk decided to call this home.
