Remember I will buy the whatbird app as soon as it becomes available for Android, so please in the mean time

help me with this hawk. Because of previous help from this site I believe it to be a juvenile Ferruginous but am not 100 percent

and don't want to call it something it is not :)

I think I can see that there's no patagial mark and that the yellow gape goes under the eye, so I like the Ferruginous theory.  Also the wings don't seem to have the Red-tail's bulging shape.  People have been seeing ferruges at the Bosque del Apache (here in New Mexico) a lot this winter.
