Feruginious Hawk, a beautiful bird of prey and a member of the Buzzard family. There is an ongoing debate whether to reclassify the breed to the Eagle family. At present it is the largest Buzzard in the USA, if reclassified it would become the smallest eagle. A stunningly beautiful bird whichever family it will belong to. A truly majestic master of the sky. I hope you like him.
Many thanks for the C&C's on my Eagle Owl, every one was very much appreciated.
Have a great weekend.
Steve.

I reckon he's/she's fortunate as either side is beautiful! Glad to learn it isn't only plants that keep being moved into different categories - as if they cared!!
