The Red Tailed Hawk is a hawk and the quaternary antagonist in the film Rango. The hawk has a metal beak meaning she probably lost it during a clash.

Role in the Film

Rango met the Hawk for the first time when he was wandering in the Mojave Desert, when the Hawk was predating. The chameleon barely avoided a death at the bird's talon. The hawk then snacked up a frog instead.

Later, the Hawk appeared behind Rango in Dirt, during the latter's duel. With incredible luck, Rango killed the Hawk by causing a gravel-filled water tower to fall and crush the bird, while she is frozen of fear. After she is killed by Rango the townsfolk cook her up and use her to make soup.

The Hawk was feared by everyone in Dirt, including Rattlesnake Jake. Therefore, killing the Hawk lend to Rango being accepted as a hero in the town and becoming the new sheriff.


  • It can be possible that the hawk have lost her beak during a past battle with the Rattlesnake Jake. Infact, the serpent has also an harmed part of body (the rattle) and she's also the only species of animal he fears probably for this reason.
  • It's unknown if the hawk could talk or not, but she seemed to be incapable of talking like some animals in the film. (Bats for example)
