Ducks (Anserifonnes; Anatinae) are preyed on by red-tailed hawks (Buteo jamaicensis) in the northern Great Plains of North America, yet I found no published, direct observations of captures of wild ducks by red-tailed hawks in the region. I made the following observations in south central Burke County, northwestern North Dakota.
