Sometimes called a ‘chickenhawk’ but Red-tailed Hawks will in fact eat pretty much everything except a full-sized chicken – squirrels, mice, rabbits, birds, reptiles, snakes, lizards, fish and insects are all on the menu. Distinctive for its very cool red tail, this 2021 US Battle of the Birds winner is an open-country bird, often seen perched on a pole or soaring in wide circles above fields, looking like it’s just chillin’, till…dinner runs by. The Red-tailed Hawk has a loud, high-pitched screaming whistle. You hear it all the time in TV shows and movies, no matter which bird of prey is onscreen. Because, why let truth get in the way of a good sound effect?

Our Red-Tailed Hawk is:

Our birds are designed with 1/8-inch CorTen steel to form a protective patina that deepens and strengthens with the seasons. This patina will deepen in shade over the years until it reaches a deep brown/charcoal black hue.

This self-sealing aspect of CorTen steel provides a quality guarantee of up to 100 years, ensuring that our product lasts a lifetime and remains completely corrosion resistent.

What might initially resemble generic rust is simply the air and water-tight patina forming over a six month period, so don’t panic! Your Metalbird is doing exactly what it’s been designed to do, and this patina will protect the steel from any further damage and disintegration.

CorTen steel does not require any treatments, oils or chemical additives and is therefore extremely environmentally friendly.
