The Red-tailed Hawk is a bird of prey known in the U. as the chicken-hawk, tho it rarely preys on standard sized chickens. It breeds in most of North America, from W Alaska & N Canada as far south as Panama & the West Indies.
The Ornate Hawk-Eagle is a bird of prey from the tropical Americas. Like all eagles, it is in the family Accipitridae. This species is notable for its vivid colours, which differ markedly between adult and immature birds (photo from San Diego Zoo Global)
Breeds from the southwestern United States south to Chile & central Argentina. Birds are reported at large in western Europe, especially Britain, records almost certainly all referto escapes from captivity.
