Welcome to BC Red-Tails, home of The BC Red-tailed Hawk Project.
We are looking for images of Red-tailed Hawks from across British Columbia to document the large variation in appearance (plumage) that is a trait of this common raptor species. While we are most interested in pictures taken during the breeding season we will gladly accept pictures from anytime in the year. Go to our About page for more information.
If you have Red-tailed Hawk images from previous years or if you expect that you will have the opportunity to observe and photograph Red-tailed Hawks in 2014 and would like to contribute, please go to the Submit Images page. The success of this project will depend on our ability to find good quality images from all parts of the province.
Our immediate goal is to use this site to collect and organize images and to present interesting observations and results through regular blog posts at this site. We would also like this site to be a forum where anyone can discuss the pictures, observations or any other thoughts that they may have that are related to this project.
This site was launched on February 10, 2014 and has been gathering images from around the province and, in a few cases, from adjacent regions. As of May 1, we have over 300 images from all seasons and for several different years. Our geographical coverage is still poor with little or no coverage over much of the province.
We are planning to make the entire collection available for browsing and we continue to look for new ways to advertise this project in all corners of BC. If you wish to provide feedback or have ideas on how we can improve the project or reach a wider audience please see our Contact page.
Thanks for visiting this site.
