Subject: [Tweeters] Interstate Redtails
Greetings. I was wondering if anyone has done any research on the redtails that regularly hang out along I-5. I make a weekly drive from Seattle to Arlington and always see several.

What are they eating?

How often are they hit by vehicles?

Is there a population estimate for them in the Puget lowland and is the population growing or shrinking?

They seem to be a bird that has perhaps taken advantage of urban development. Would this be a correct statement?

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks kindly,
