Cherokee, Red-tailed Hawk

Cherokee is our female Red-tailed Hawk and she was born in mid 2014.

Red-tailed hawks are common throughout North America and are sometimes known as a Redtail Buzzard.

Cherokee weighs 1 kilogram (equivalent to a bag of sugar) as her “flying weight”. She has a wonderful sweet personality and loves nothing more than having a conversation with anyone willing to listen!

Before arriving at KG Hawks, Cherokee had never been handled by humans before. Despite this, she is a very quick learner and within a day she was eating her food from the glove (in between chirping how her day had been) and was quite happy to sit and watch the world go by. She is becoming a fond favourite amongst everyone here with her wonderful personality and quirky nature.
