ARIZONA HAWKS
Who have been a part of Wild At Heart

 

HAWKS
Accipiters, such as Cooper’s and sharp-shinned hawks, have short rounded wings and long tails and are common forest-dwellers. They are expert at chasing small birds through trees and catching them mid-air. The larger northern goshawk is an accipiter, too.


Buteos, large broad-winged hawks, including the red-tailed hawk, common black-hawk, Harris’s hawk and zone-tailed hawk, often catch rodents and other prey on the ground. Buteos are usually perch-and-wait raptors that you will commonly see sitting on tall structures like telephone poles, trees, signs or billboards.
