The Ferruginous Hawk is a large bird of prey and belongs to the broad-winged buteo hawks. An old colloquial name is "Ferrugineous Rough-leg",due to its similarity to the closely related Rough-legged Hawk. This species is a large, broad-winged hawk of the open, arid grasslands, prairie and shrub steppe country; it is endemic to the interior parts of North America. It is used as a falconry bird in its native range.
