Hawks Hawks everywhere - total of 35 of them

We saw 25 Red-Tailed Hawks both adult and juvenile. One was extremely vocal. Other highlights of the day were red bellied woodpecker, 5 northern harriers plus more for 22 species day. Leslie and I both enjoyed the backroads and the beautiful sun.

Leslie and I were shocked to see a rough legged and red tail hawk sitting in the same tree. The Rough-Legged suddenly went after the red tail.

Our first sighting was a beautiful Rough Legged hawk. Over the course of the day we saw 5 of them. Most were actively hunting. Saw both dark and light morph.

  1. Wow - what a great day you had. Love the raptor shots, especially the roughie going after the red-tailed hawk! Nice fence-post landscape too. Great job!
