North American, South American and even Australia!You may not know what I'm talking about but, its Hawks! They can be found everywhere but you will never find a hawk in Antarctica.

Hawks are birds of habit and return to the same nest every year.


When hawks migrate they often move to warmer climates because of the winter.But,

other hawks like the Red-Tailed hawk or the Northern Goshawk they have to fly south

if there is no more

Body Covering

Hawks are warm-blooded like me and you.They also have feathers that cover their entire body from their beak to their talons. Feathers are different colors such as black, brown, white, gray, cream, and tan.

Hawks are mainly meat-eaters.But the Red tailed hawk eats everything from rabbits and mice to small birds, snakes, and lizards.Hawks have sharp vision for hunting down dinner during the day.


Some hawks are mate for life let me give you an example the Red tailed hawks are
monogamous which means "mate for life". The female hawk normally lays one to five eggs each year.The female and male hawk both will incubate the eggs for four to five weeks.After the eggs hatch they are feed until they leave the nest which takes up to six weeks.


The adaption of a hawk is that they have strong wings and hollow bones so that
they are able to fly. Their hook beaks are rip the flesh of other animals such as rats,other birds, and fish. Hawks also have sharp and strong talons so that they are able to grab and kill their prey.






Average life span in the wild:

21 years


Body, 18 to 26 in (45 to 65 cm); wingspan, 38 to 43 in (1.1 to 1.3 m)


24.3 to 51.5 oz (690 to 1,460 g)

Did you know?

The red-tailed hawk is displaying an aggressive posture when it holds its body and head upright while its feathers are standing erect.
