What is a hawks lair?
Hawks build a nest in a tall tree or on the side of a cliff. A lair is usually thought of as a cave or den, used by ground dwelling animals. If they are not nesting, they will roost at night in tall trees hidden by leaves. Hawks do not see well at night, their eyes are made for detecting movement during daytime. They are vulnerable to predators at night, so it is important that they find safe places off the ground to sleep.

Asked in Foxes
Do foxes live in a lair?
A lair is a general term for an underground or enclosed place that an animal not necessarily a fox uses to hide, sleep, etc. The name for a fox's lair is a 'den', or a less commonly used term for a fox's lair is a 'covert'. I don't think I have ever heard it called anything else, either. As children, we just called it a fox hole. I've heard it called a den on a TV nature show, too. Occasionally a fox's lair is also referred to as a 'holt'.
