This is a large, broad-winged hawk lives and hunts in arid grasslands, prairies of North America
Grassland prairie near small lakes, ponds, and food sources.
This ferruginous Hawk was feeding on a prairie dog when a red-tailed hawk came in to steal a few bites. The larger ferruginous hawk defended her meal, had her fill and flew off. The red-tailed hawk eventually came back to pick through the leftovers.
