This species is tolerant of exurban development and agricultural development as long as food is available and the converted landscape includes adequate open space and perch sites for hunting and tall trees or other structures for nesting. Some individuals successfully breed in large, urban environments.

The species is primarily a sit-and-wait predator and generally requires elevated perch sites for hunting. ) have expanded our understanding of how this species adapts to a wide array of habitats across its range.

Where it inhabits closed-canopy tropical forests, however, the Red-tail dives on prey from the air far above the canopy. Temporal and spatial stability of Red-tailed Hawk territories in the Luquillo Experimental Forest, Puerto Rico. Life history and ecology in the tropics outside of Puerto Rico remains poorly documented, however.

The species' diet includes a wide variety of small to medium-sized mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, arthropods, and fresh carrion. The global population of 2,000,000 or more is considered stable or slightly increasing, although numbers may be declining slightly in the mixed-woodland plains of far eastern Canada.

Populations increased through much of North America during the mid-to-late 20th century, apparently in response to the widespread establishment of open, wooded parkland in place of grassland or dense forest.

Most information on life history and ecology for this species comes from studies in interior North America of breeding populations (e.g., Boal, C.
