Zenfolio | Dave Waddell's Photography | Juvenile Ferruginous Hawk: perched and flight

17 photos
This is the largest hawk in North America. It inhabits the major dry areas of Southern Saskatchewan and Alberta and many dry areas of Western United States. In spite of the fact that it is such a striking and large bird of prey it, like all raptors, is harassed by many smaller birds to move on when it enters their nesting areas.

This Ferruginous Hawk is a light morph and seems to prefer to spend a lot of time observing from small elevated hills and as all hawks conserves energy whenever possible.

A wonderful bird to observe.....cheers....dave.

Music by Deuter and thank you sir!
