The red tail feathers of this hawk are extremely significant as they bring strong power in relation to the first chakra, otherwise known as the root chakra. The first chakra relates to situations and circumstances around family, friends, and community, our feeling secure in the physical world. To have red feathers amplifies the power of this message and demonstrates how integral these hawks can be in helping us work through our sense of belonging. Red is a personal heart color, the one that ties us intimately with those we come into contact with on a daily basis. You will see a thin black horizontal line running across the base of the feathers with each feather tipped by white.
