On my first visit a couple weeks back there were so many Ferruginous Hawks in that nice snowy setting. A couple of them were very obliging like this one. A few days ago the snow had melted and the Ferruginous Hawks along with the other raptors stayed hunkered down in the field far out. Glad I got my Ferruginous snow shots on the first visit.
