Hi, I am called the Red Tailed Hawk, and I am a Raptor which means I am designed to have very sharp Talons, sharp hooked beak, and a keen eyesight. I am a bird of prey that will hunt and kill and eat animals. Our hooked and sharp beak will tear apart the flesh of any animal, and my keen eyesight helps me to hunt the food, and my powerful feet with curved, sharp talons can easily capture my prey and then my breakfast or dinner will be so yummy.
Some humans have said our eyesight is like binocular vision, and our Talons can help us grab our prey so easily. One more interesting thing about our eyesight is we can see colors just like you humans can, and as well as those in the ultraviolet range. Which means we can perceive colors that you humans cannot see.
We are Diurnal hunters, and we can see black and white so well that we can hunt at dusk when rodents and nocturnal animals wake up and move around looking for food. We have Nictitating Membrane which means we have a clear inner lid that cleans our eyes and protects it. If we have to fight the prey to kill it. We do not have any sense of smell but very smart scientist say we have some Olfactory ability.
I hope you do some researching and figure out what that means, because I am just saw a huge rodent that will be so yummy to eat for a snack. Remember look for me, because I am always hungry and looking for food to eat. I can be soaring over fields, or forests, or even by your house. See you one of these days.
