Betty Churchill of Clay, New York had a close encounter with a Red-tailed Hawk in her backyard. Fortunately for us, she caught the whole thing on video!

The Red-tailed Hawk makes an entrance around the 1 minute point in the video, after a slideshow about a Sharp-shinned Hawk. Wow!

    Hungry Juvenile maybe. They do all sorts of strange things while learning. I read somewhere that 1/3 or more of juvenile hawks die of starvation before learning to hunt well enough to sustain life.
