*the red-tailed hawk occupies a wide range of habitats and altitudes, including deserts, grasslands, coniferous and deciduous forests, tropical rainforests, agricultural fields and urban areas. it lives throughout the North American continent, except in areas of unbroken forest or the high arctic. it is legally protected in Canada, Mexico and the United States by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.

 

because they are so common and easily trained as capable hunters, the majority of hawks captured for falconry in the United States are red-tails.
