The Hawk is an antagonist from the 1991 film, An American Tail: Fievel Goes West. It swoops down after Fievel when he's lost in the desert, picking him up after chasing him into a scorpion hole. Upon arriving at a distance from the butte where the Mousehican tribe climbed onto along with Geronimouse, the hawk is later shot out of the sky by the Mousehican tribe using fireworks; this is likely because it didn't consider flying away to dodge any in-coming explosives. After that, the Native American Mice are shown carrying a plate with a fully-cooked bird on it a couple scenes later, which we can presume was the hawk.
Role in the Film
The hawk mainly exists to provide tension while Fievel is lost in the desert, illustrating just how dangerous of a situation he is in. Fievel even squeaks like a mouse when he is being chased by the hawk, the only time in the series where he does so. This perhaps helps show that he is truly the prey.
