Many of us remember the magical time of our lives when we were young and just starting out in the world. Just like a juvenile human being, a Juvenile Red Tail Hawk has lots of growing up to do! Life is full of exciting adventures and lessons learned within Mother Nature's classroom of life. Red Tails are a very successful species in fact, their habitat covers most of North America. Their famous "red" tail feathers do not develop their famous red coloring until adulthood and neither do their famous hunting skills. They are quick learners however the early attempts aren't always successful. They have stunning eye capable of spotting their prey form great distances and clearly for a laser focus when swooping down on a potential meal. They are simply incredible to watch and admire and I am happy to share this small window into the world of a young Red Tailed Hawk enjoy! Protecting wildlife habitat is something that is important for each and every one of us because there is only one Earth, and we all live here and share it together.

As part of a series for hawk watchers in eastern North America, this video discusses examples of juvenile Red-tailed Hawks. There are very few YouTube videos about hawk watching in North America so I plan to create more content. If you have any suggestions please leave me a comment. For more information on hawk watching, I recommend the following resources: "Hawks From a Distance" by Jerry Liguori "Hawks from Every Angle" by Jerry Liguori "Hawks in Flight" by Pete Dunne, David Sibley, and Clay Sutton "The Crossley ID Guide : Raptors" by Richard Crossley, Jerry Liguori, and Brian Sullivan "Raptor ID" smartphone app For more information about hawk watching in Lycoming County, Pennsylvania visit: http://www.lycobirds.com/hawk-watching

Been trying to catch a mother and father hawk who have been trying to train their juvenile offspring how to hunt own its own..never have my video camera handy or just missed them. then I remembered I had taken some pics of the juvenile sitting on the fence with my still camera so created a slide show using Picasa 3 and then Windows Movie Maker...still trying for that video...

I forgot to upload this video of a Juvenile Cooper's Hawk who landed on some pallets in our yard after a Snow Storm. It was a very rough winter 2015 for the Wildlife here in Massachusetts. This Hawk was about 15 feet from the house. I recorded it through double pain sliding glass doors. I wanted to open the door to get a clearer video but I didn't want to scare the Hawk off. He looked very tired. So I let him rest and did the best I could do for this video. I love Hawks. I get Sharp-Shinned Hawks daily that visit my yard,, this hawk was definitely bigger than a Sharp-Shinned. But it wasn't large like a Red-Tailed or Red-Shouldered. At one point it seems as thou he looks right into my Eyes. What a special moment. Thank you for watching.
