Ferruginous Hawk

Drove up to this young Ferruginous Hawk hunting aggressively at on the side of the road that morning. I later witnessed him devouring a gopher from a distance as he ate it rapidly. Soon after, two Red Tailed Hawks came in to lock talons with him as he barely finished his meal. They were very unhappy with the new kid on the block.
