It makes a harsh reek reek sound when it is perched in a tree.
On Sunday our church went to help the Cross Community Mission Foundation, a group that aims to help serve the homeless folk in the D.C area.
While we were setting up tables underneath the trees, one of the Sunday school kids saw a very large bird swoop down in pursuit of a squirrel.
They spent a good half hour following that bird and trying to take a picture of it. Any help identifying this would be much appreciated :D

Red-tailed Hawks can acclimate to all the biomes within their range....
