The "Broad-winged" (Rough legged?)

6 posts in this topic

Simply a beautiful bird!...I watched this one for half an hour this morning hovering over the vast fields of the Sax-Zim bog and was fortunate that it lighted in a tree about 50 yards away "poseing" for me grin.....(digiscoped)

I've been seeing a lot of hawks down there lately. Still no owls though. Yesterday a hawk was by the sod farm and dove down on the shoulder of the rode to catch a mouse. By the time I pulled up the mouse was being swallowed and I forgot to take my lens cap off...lol I missed it.

Great shots!

Thanks Jay....I hear you on the hawks down in the bog....quite a few for sure!.....I'm not a hawk ID expert but after looking at the Sibleys here a few minutes ago, I think this hawk is a "rough legged"....geesh these hawks are hard to tell apart! grin.......oh well....it's a nice hawk none the less grin.....I did use a "mouse squeeker" to keep this hawk somewhat interested while I snapped images....guess it worked! grin

jonny, those do look like rough legged. They always look like they are ready to lay an ostrich egg. Nice shots and thanks for the tip on the mouse squeeker, never thought about that.

Nice ones, Jonny!

Micpic, the mouse squeaker works to bring a lot of birds in close.
