Must confess to not having heard of a "ferruginous eagle", much less a hybrid of the same.

Rob
He is getting 'eagle' from the arguments over ferruginous
Being buzzard or eagle but I'm sure you knew that

There is a Harris hybrid section in the coulsons new book
With pictures of ferru x Harris , Harris x red
Harris x gos, Harris x coopers,Harris x goldie
Harris x ferru/rt

Seen a male ferru x Harris on birdtrader recently hunts at
2ib 9
Better to hear from someone who has had one in the field
Tho not a beginners bird either

This hybrid was first produced at least 20 years ago so is nothing new. Such crosses hardly ever perform any better than either of the parent birds.
Personally, I wouldn't pay any more than the price of a well bred, parent reared Redtail or Harris Hawk.
If, as I suspect, you are a beginner in falconry, then you would be far wiser to find a good local mentor who would I'm sure, advise you to start with a pure bred species suited to your circumstances.
