Susan and I were sitting behind the house today taking a break after stacking firewood when she pointed out a large raptor cruising south, through our binoculars we noted it had very long and thin wings that came to a point. As it passed overhead we could see that the tail was all white with no terminal band, the wings were held in a shallow "V" and had dark leading edges to the wings and white primaries. A pretty classic looking Ferruginous Hawk and not even a new property bird. The bird was following the ridge we live on that leads down to the Steigerwald Lake NWR where it should be looked for tomorrow. Wilson Cady
