Most types of hawks have to live in forests or semi-forest regions because that is where they find prey (mostly small mammals and other birds).

Hawks mainly live in forests. They need to live in a place with a certain temperature and their body structure (Long tail, short wings, etc) is built to live within the woods.

In the trees.

One exception is the Harris' hawk, which thrives in the deserts of North America.
they habitat in tall trees so that when they see their prey they can just swoop down and grab their prey and go.
