Red-tailed Hawk - Buteo jamaicensis Hawk with a brownish/reddish head, brown streaks in breast and belly feathers, yellow legs and feet, and white underparts.<br />

Habitat: I saw this hawk sitting in a tree on the edge of a parking lot for a busy shopping plaza. It was a freezing cold day, and this bird really stood out in an urban landscape. Buteo jamaicensis,Geotagged,Red-tailed hawk,United States,Winter,hawk Click/tap to enlarge Promoted

The red-tailed hawk is a bird of prey, one of three species colloquially known in the United States as the "chickenhawk," though it rarely preys on standard sized chickens. It breeds throughout most of North America, from western Alaska and northern Canada to as far south as Panama and the West Indies, and is one of the most common buteos in North America.
