My favorite hawks for sure. I happened across this beautiful example north of Denver International Airport yesterday. It gave me some nice poses then a nice launch and flyby.
Ferruginous Hawks are very large and can be mistaken for an eagle at a distance. Their plumage is just gorgeous and that smile that they seem to have very cool. While they can be found here in Colorado year-round, they are most common during the winter months.
