With the 2014 FIFA World Cup coming, every one is getting excited, even the Red Tail Hawk came down to take a closer look at a little league soccer game. The hawk liked the soccer game so much, he stayed around to play as a goalie. But since he wasn’t playing fair and the kids were scared of him, the referee gave him a red card and tossed him out of the game.

Interesting Fact: These birds of prey are also known as buzzard hawks and red hawks. By any name, they are keen-eyed and efficient hunters. Red-tails prefer open areas, such as fields or deserts, with high perching places nearby from which they can watch for prey. But these birds are adaptable and also dwell in mountains and tropical rain forests. Hawks have even embraced human habitats. They often perch on telephone poles and take advantage of the open spaces along the roadside to spot and seize mice, ground squirrels, rabbits, reptiles, or other prey.
