Red-Tailed Hawk

Buteo jamaicensis


Most common hawk in North America. This one (I believe a male in juvenile phase) was in the trees in suburban Princeton, NJ.


The Red-tailed Hawk is a bird of open country. Look for it along fields and perched on telephones poles, fenceposts, or trees standing alone or along edges of fields.
