Palisades, NJ A Red Tailed Hawk travels swiftly through the sky as it flies south for the winter. Every year during the fall season Hawks line up to migrate south to avoid the cold harsh winter and heavy snows. Using warm pockets of air coming off the ground they can use their wings as a sail to create lift which allows these Raptors to gain altitude with out flapping their wings. Once they are high enough, they will glide south miles at a time making this an efficient way of traveling to the southern hemisphere for the winter months.
