With a wingspan pushing six feet - as tall as a man, the Ferruginous Hawk is the largest hawk in the world and is often mistaken for an eagle. Fortunately, they are also abundant, making them a spantacular sight to see. Before Bison in the west were eliminated, they partially built their nests out of bison bones. Traveling down from the north during winter, they find their homes in warmer climates, like in California.
