Fun fact! Red-tailed hawks are unsurprisingly named for their rufous tails, but there are 14 subspecies of various colorations, and not all of them have this characteristic. The species is monogamous and may mate for life, and the males take an active role in parenting, sharing incubating and feeding duties with their mate.
