PIC OF THE WEEK: 02/23/14 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2015 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where:Hilton Head Island, SC • Sea Pines Plantation
Notes: This sort of image is not always appetizing to everyone, but yet it is a fact of nature. This photograph visually demonstrates the tenacity of this young raptor to remain persistent in its pursuit of survival. There is an estimated survival rate of about only twenty percent in the first year for this species, so each meal is a step in the right direction. This kill demonstrates that this individual has learned the skill of the hunt, significantly increasing its survival possibilities. At the same time it is helping to keep the local Squirrel population in check. Red-Tailed Hawks have a very diverse diet. They are most commonly found hunting small mammals such as mice, rats, squirrels and rabbits, but they will also eat snakes, lizards, pigeons, ducks, and other birds. “Red-tails” will take advantage of almost any habitat with a suitable prey population. Like this bird, they have adapted well to urban areas, such as neighborhoods and city parks.
