The Red-tail is the most common and widespread American member of the genus Buteo, which also includes the Red-shouldered, Swainson’s, and Gray hawks, among others. Like other hawks of this group, it soars over open country in search of its prey but just as often perches in a tree at the edge of a meadow, watching for the slightest movement in the grass below. The Red-tail rarely takes poultry, feeding mainly on small rodents. Certain western birds with grayish, faintly streaked or mottled tails were formerly considered a separate species called “Harlan’s Hawk.”
