Ferruginous Hawk   (Two Photos)
Buteo regalis

I was surprised to see this beautiful Furruginous Hawk land just off the freeway at the Yuba Reservoir exit. 
It stood around with the cattle for awhile. Possibly looking for nesting material? I noticed there was another
one flying overhead as I left for home.  © Carol Davis 4-14-2008
