Ferris

Ferris is a male ferruginous hawk. They're gorgeous birds I have to admit They can be sooo temperamental though and I wouldn't of even wanted to go near one when I was a beginner. Now I know my stuff a lot more I find them easier, but still they can be stroppy. They're also hard to hunt with. They need a lot of open space like falcons because even though they're of the broadwing buzzard species (buteos) they actually have long pointed wings like a falcon. It's really odd. They can hit some pretty cool speeds too. They're also pretty big, but in comparison to their bodies, they have pathetic feet and I've never known anybody with a male catch a rabbit

He is indeed and yeah I know they don't often appear sadly, but I did see somebody posted some pictures on a site before and the bird was right in the middle of the city eating something!
