I was SURE that those where the best pictures of a Rough-legged Hawk I would ever hope to get. I was wrong. Another friend said she had a bunch of magpies at her house, so we zipped on over. She also said there was a great big hawk. The target was the Magpies, because I had thought I had got the best hawk photos attainable. At her house there also was NO magpies, but there was a Rough-legged Hawk. This hawk was sitting on a pile of meat scraps, eating lunch. It let me, and my friend get within 3 feet of it!!!! WOW !! That was soooo AMAZING!!!! I got some amazing pictures!!!
Also, counting today (31st) I had seen White-winged Crossbills for 3 days in a row!!
