Tulelake in Siskiyou County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
Raptors - Birds of Prey
A favorable environment here is supporting a large number of raptors. In recent years, sixteen species have been identified in this area, among them the red-tailed hawk, prairie falcon and barn owl.
Raptors help to control rodent populations that might otherwise threaten crops. Some are able to consume their weight each day in mice, ground squirrels, and other small animals. Man has been their chief enemy, but today they are protected by law.
