Description
Manuscript arguing that red-tailed hawks are beneficial to the environment, not detrimental as sportsmen and farmers would have the public believe. Farmers assume that the hawk is after livestock. Sportsmen blame the hawk for the decrease of other bird and game populations. The author contends that these birds help aid the natural balance of their ecosystem. They help weed out rodents that destroy crops.
