Ferruginous hawk

Ferruginous-Hawk-F3

Saw my first Ferruginous hawk (Buteo regalis) yesterday. While this is not a picture of the one I saw, it is more on less identical. Interestingly, I spotted the hawk was being mobbed by some very irate birds as I was driving home from the store and was able to pull over and get a good look for over a minute. I hadn’t realized that we had them here in the ’burbs, but am fairly confident of the identification.

  1. Raptors get no respect. When was the last time anyone saw a bunch of rabbits mobbing a fox?
