I noticed this gorgeous hawk sitting in the very tippy top of a very tall, old cottonwood tree at the NE corner of our property and not very far from our house. My hubby says he thinks it is a FERRUGINOUS HAWK. He didn't seem too concerned with my presence, probably has seen us many times. This tree is a favorite for many birds and we've seen bald eagles, vultures and Canada geese perched up there . . . and I mean UPPPPPP there! Just love to see them there!
