B is for Buteo - a genus of medium to large raptors with robust bodies and wide wings. In North America they are called Hawks, but in other parts of the world they are known as Buzzards.
|Red-Tailed Hawk, Buteo jamaicensis, Lee County, Mississippi, USA, January 18, 2016|
I was not sure which hawk this was until it flew and I saw its rusty-red tail. Red-Tailed Hawks can be found across most of the United States and Canada.
Hope you are having a great day!
