Rough-legged Hawk

Today I went again to Morrow Co. in Eastern Oregon to count raptors. The sky was cloudy and the temperature hovered around the freezing point most of the day. In places every twig and blade of grass was coated with ice. This Rough-legged Hawk and a few others (far from their home somewhere in the northern tundra) have chosen this place for their winter retreat. Very few other raptors were hanging out in that neighborhood today.
