Image by @joelsartore | A partial albino red-tailed hawk at @MNZoo.
Normally, this species’ feathers are not white like this one--usually they're brown with a reddish tail. Red-tailed hawks can be found scattered widely all the way from Alaska to Central America. They have very few natural predators, and generally hunt by scanning for prey from a perched location or during flight before swooping down to catch it with their talons. Red-tailed hawks are monogamous, mating with the same individual for many years. Generally, the only time they’ll take a new mate is if their original mate dies.
