Photos of Ferruginous Hawk

Photography by Terry Sohl

My Favorite: Ferruginous Hawks are one of my favorite birds, hands down. They are SO aptly named..."Buteo regalis". They are such, large, gorgeous, elegant-looking birds. Many a time when coming across them in winter, my first thought upon seeing them from a distance is "Snowy Owl", given the gorgeous, brilliantly white underparts they have.  Here's one of my favorite flight photos of these beautiful birds.
