First Ferruginous Hawk of the season

I was very happy to see my first and second of the season of these cool raptors. One gave me a nice flyby and the other posed on a pole for a bit before launching and heading off into the distance. These are probably my favorite type of hawk. They are just plain cool looking and I love the unmistakable ‘joker smile’ that they have.

Ferruginous Hawks are the largest buteos in North America and from a distance, their size and profile may have them mistaken for eagles. While they can be found here in Colorado year-round, they are most common during the winter months.
