Red-tailed Hawk

Red-tailed hawks are common across Mississippi in the winter, but the numbers thin out after March. Even so, this is the most common breeding hawk in the state.

This species can sometimes be located by talking to local landowners, who usually know where the redtails are nesting. Confirmations are usually going to be young hawks.
