I saw at least four RTHA in this burned area of Bastrop. Local naturalists have mentioned that the regrowth after the burn has lead to an abundance of rodents. If so, I'm sure the RTHA's appreciate all of the dead trees to perch on.

Description from Wikipedia

The Red-tailed Hawk (Buteo jamaicensis) is a bird of prey, one of three species colloquially known in the United States as the "chickenhawk," though it rarely preys on standard sized chickens. It breeds throughout most of North America, from western Alaska and northern Canada to as far south as Panama and the West Indies, and is one of the most common buteos in North America. Red-tailed Hawks can acclimate to all the biomes within their range....
