Red-tailed Hawk Screaming Call

Get this sound with YouTube MP3jam
A Red-tailed Hawk (Buteo jamaicensis) perched high up in a tree giving its scream call, which sounds like a raspy keeeeer. Unknown to me at the time I had gotten close to its nest, and it wasn't happy. The sound of the red-tailed hawk is often used in movies and TV as the sound of a Bald Eagle, because it fits with what most people think a Bald Eagle should sound like. However the calls of the two birds don't sound alike at all.
