This bird is so colorful and pretty one would think it is someones pet!! This wild hawk is also found in and around our area known for the larger wildlife that Oregon USA has anyways! The Ferruginous Hawk and the Rough-legged Hawk can be confusing during their life cycle! I take the photographs of the Ferruginous Hawk, male, female and juvenile that I sent away to a bird of prey specialist as a bases of my identification of these two species! This Rough-legged Hawk was photographed right here in our town on a cold winter day. Feel free to download a free watermarked sample of this image to see what the unwatermarked purchased image will look like before making that choice! I do photography full time and have thousands of images I am getting up on this computer as time permits. Contact me with any questions you may have at my website.
