Dark adult Ferruginous Hawk

Every bird  I photograph then attempt to identify is always an enjoyable challenge for me.   However, to correctly identify a Hawk is another story. It takes me hours to look through books and the internet to find a picture that looks similar to the one I have. So occasionally I have to ask my friends for help and I in return gain much needed education in birding.  I first thought this was a Turkey Vulture but the beak didn't quite look (red) like one, but the white under the wings sure did!  What do you think?
