Rough-legged Hawk (Buteo lagopus) by Scott Kruitbosch

Posted on Dec 16, 2013

This light morph Rough-legged Hawk (Buteo lagopus) was another fantastic raptor from the Jamestown Christmas Bird Count. I spotted it sitting on this pole before it flew off to a tree and then west. I do not believe any others were seen in our circle yesterday in the constant lake effect snow.
