A large hawk after it has caught dinner. You can't see it but it has a tight grip on dinner. I heard a great crashing in the bushes and squealing sounds. When I look around I saw this hawk. It held it's prey for a while, as I took photos, before eating dinner.
I tried to identify this hawk but, when I looked in my Audubon Field Guide to North American Birds it looked most like a Ferruginous Hawk, but they are not in this part of the country. It does not have the white eyebrow of a goshawk. It might be juvenile but it does not have the yellow eyes. I also looked online at some reputable web sites and there are several similar species but a lot of variation within species. All the photos and descriptions had at least one aspect that did not match this bird.
