Red-tailed HawkThere are around 250 species of birds in this family. They are found in all parts of the world, except for Antarctica. They live in a wide variety of habitats including deserts, forests, grasslands, and wetlands.

The birds in this family eat birds, fish, small mammals, carrion, and fruit. They kill their prey by squeezing and puncturing it with their talons. They usually nest in trees, and most pairs mate for more than one year. They are excellent fliers and have a great sense of sight.

Birds in this family are usually brown, black, or gray in color and have strong, sharp talons and hooked bills. Their eyes are yellow, red, or hazel. They can have wingspans from 18 inches to 9 feet. Females are usually larger than males.
