Semi Tropic Spiritualists' Tract: Just How Much Larger Is The Female Red Tail Than Her Mate?

Video: Gary Vlahakis, May 3, 2012, around 3PM.  (Best viewed in full screen.)

Female Red Tailed Hawks are considerably larger than the males.   In the video, male lands with a small prey animal in his beak for the 4 chicks.  At 28 seconds, the female joins the family in the nest.

We'd like to acknowledge Gary's dedication to documenting the Red Tailed Hawk nest.  We are grateful for the window into the Red Tail's home life most of us would never see.
