Rufous-tippped Hawk or Krider's Hawk in nofeather, is a subspecies of Red-tailed Hawk. Their name is shortened to rufoustips in hookbeak.

In Fleeters universeEdit

In the raptor's views, rufoustips are usually considered distinct from redtails. However, some redtails may look similar to rufoustips, causing confusion for some raptors. Most redtails consider rufoustips the same species, albeit in a different Clan.

Swallowheart befriended and mated with a redtail, despite being from a different Clan than her. Some raptors may consider this forbidden love.
