Although the raptor population of City Birds Country, the Heart of San Francisco, has been in general decline over the last several years; the beautiful Red-tailed Hawk has been spending a lot of time hanging out in a very large, old-growth pine tree in the middle of a courtyard surrounded by apartment buildings.  This hawk is not the only bird seen enjoying the tree.  The relationship of the various species of birds with each other, while enjoying the tree at the same time, is fascinating.  This slide show gives some insights into their behavior.  Enjoy our two movies featuring this same Red-tailed Hawk.  The movies are in our Video Section.  NOTE:  Not long after these pictures were taken the tree was sawed down.  This slide show was first published July 27, 2006 by City Birds.
