I captured this Ferruginous Hawk while on a outing at the Arizona Desert Museum Raptor free flight. Not the clearest of shots I would have liked but I really enjoyed the pose.

Named for its ferruginous (rust-colored) feathers, the Ferruginous Hawk is the largest North American member of the Buteo genus, which also includes the ubiquitous Red-tailed Hawk. Ferruginous Hawks are found in open arid regions of western North America where they feed primarily on small mammals especially ground squirrels, rabbits and prairie-dogs.
