- a hawk - a beautiful Red Kite (milvus milvus). The lucky Europeans, and people in the United Kingdom, Ireland and that area of the world who get to see this beautiful, agile bird of prey. This particular photo was taken during a snow fall in Sweden by Henrik Just. Well done.
The Red-tailed Hawk (Buteo jamaicensis) is a bird of prey that 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 hawks in North America. (Photo Dave Van de Laar)
