The most popular birds in our Audubon line have been refreshed to provide vivid colors, clarity and exactness in appearance like never before. Educational and collectible, our 5” Red-tailed Hawk stuffed animal is so realistic the design is approved by Audubon and the sound comes from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s wildlife recordings.
Hear this bird in the wild:
He/she is so cute!!! - but shows some authority. When my husband and I were at our local rifle range shooting our rifles a real red tailed hawk swooped down and seized a tiny hapless mouse some 30 feet away just under the muzzles of our rifles. My husband, always observant, probably because of some combat experience witnessed the entire event from the hawk's spiraled rapid descent, then a flaring of wings to arrest the descent (avoid a crash) then a minor adjustment then final impact sinking needle sharp talons into the tiny rodent, cumulated by a rapid exit. All I saw was the rich chestnut red-brown hawk tail with the with tiny mouse clutched in talons. I like to assume the hawk was a mommy and the rodent was that night's dinner for her babies. Nature is so magnificent!!!
We actually see this hawk occasionally in our backyard; this plush version is very realistic in colors, markings, and sound; love the Audubon plush birds with sound!
