The biggest giveaway is the feathers on its legs. They go all the way to the feet.

A beautiful capture, just want to reach out and touch the feathers. He fits the description of both the Rough-Legged and Ferruginous in my bird book but I'm not a birder.:)

I'm in Eastern Washington. The town of Davenport in Lincoln county. I called it one of those two hawks because of the feathers on its legs. They look like they go all the way to its feet. Check out the photo here. http://www.birdsofprey.blm.gov/roughleg.htm

:) I put that I'm in Georgia! Old habits die hard.

Wow! Another great shot! My guess on this one would be either a rough-legged or Ferruginous hawk. Do you have any more photos of him?

hi alanadra ..dont know other pics i have show that it has a white underside of the tail ..very very pretty fellow tho..love the markings of the dark stripes on his white head..fella

wonderful, my answer to how close he was is here, should have looked at this one first : ) Is it a red tailed hawk? looks similar to the RT hawks that we see around here.
