April #SuperSnap

The April #SuperSnap goes to this red-tailed hawk flying by a Snapshot Wisconsin camera located in Marathon County! Red-tailed hawks can often be seen soaring in wide circles around fields, with their eyes fixed on the ground. When prey is spotted, they will attack with a slow, controlled dive and their legs outstretched.  The red-tailed hawk is widespread and common in North America. They can utilize any kind of terrain that provides both an open area for hunting and some high perches, such as woodlands with scattered clearings, open grasslands, or desert areas with a few trees or utility poles.

A huge thanks to Zooniverse participant @oregano for this #SuperSnap nomination.
