A warm soul sent me this red-tailed hawk for my very own. Apparently, the Audubon Society has expanded its ornithological propaganda efforts into the youth sector with a whole series of plush bird dolls (more easily viewed at this slightly dubious-looking online retailer). The coolest part about these is that they come complete with embedded audio of the bird's calls, as recorded in the field by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. My red-tailed hawk emits two very satisfying, piercing shrieks when pressed on the back!
