Portrait Of Red-Shouldered Hawk - from Birds Art series, by award-winning artists Ben and Raisa Gertsberg, aka BRG, who collaborate under the name It's a Beautiful World!
This is a close-up of a perched red-tailed hawk, in profile. They are magnificent birds of prey and their natural habitat includes woodlands of North America and Mexico. Enjoy seeing this fascinating raptor up close and personal - its piercing eyes, hooked bill and feathers in its brownish, tawny plumage.
Scientific names for the predatory bird are Buteo lineatus or Buteo jamaicensis, and the bird is also colloquially known in the US as chicken hawk.
