THE BUTEO BUNCH

Birds & Blooms - - Essentials -

Red-tailed hawks, like this one, are the most com­mon mem­bers of the buteo group. These birds of prey are of­ten seen perched along road­sides or soar­ing with barely a flap of their wings. Rap­tors in the buteo fam­ily have chunky builds, broad wings and short wide tails. Other mem­bers of the buteo clan in­clude broad­winged, red-shoul­dered and rough-legged hawks.
