One of the reasons the Fort Pierre National Grasslands can be a special place to visit in the dead of winter...the array of raptors that can often be found. Near the top of the list for me are Ferruginous Hawks, drop-dead gorgeous birds that are typically easier for me to find there in winter than in summer. On this cold but crystal clear day, I came across this bird perched on a wooden post. He took off as I approached, giving the first shot below as he took off, and then curiously circled me for a bit, allowing me to get the second photo.
