This story is an homage to red-tailed hawks, a majestic bird of prey that has of late flourished in the presence of human development. My interest in red-tails started during my late teens and early twenties when I commuted to and from a local university while living at my parents house. I would see them perched on telephone poles along rural road, and soaring on the thermal currents over fields. After reading “Birds of Prey” by Leslie Brown, I started looking for red-tails in other places. I saw the tracks of their wings in the snow as they pounced after a squirrel. My brother and I scaled 60 foot oak trees to watch the growth of a baby red-tail from a downy puff of feathers to a fledgling, high in its eyrie.
