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.

    • IDK, I am kinda liking this show more and more. Its much better than the first season. Yeah, Madison has her quirks, but there are some interesting characters and this whole conflict with the indigenous people now is intriguing.
    • DOILIES. Those thing on yer man-cave table tops. So that's a pic of DOLLY, huh? Smurf 's ol' gal friend....or yers?       
    • The first piece that Golden State might be losing is Andre Iguadala. Would love to see the wolves grab him.
    •   Sure anytime. But, it kind of sounded above you were over Dollies?  Or was that Dolly's?  
    • With all the moist and cool weather, the slugs are having a feast on our garden plants.  My wife asked me to look over some plants that the insects were destroying.  Upon inspection, this is what we found - slugs.  The vegetables treated with slug bait were fine.  It was the flowers, asters, marigolds, pole beans, etc. that were untreated and weakened by some hail were experiencing a slow death.  Check this photo out of the slugs.  These were white like extra large maggots.  They are all treated and coming back strong.
    • WOWZER what a beast!!!!!!!!!!! that DNR  biologist, Mero, i had a talk with him he did the creel survey on our little lake up in itasca county, odd that he would comment about mille lacs since he was out of the grand rapids DNR  office!!!!!! good guy though!!!!!!
    • Crud. I knew that would come back on me. I'll haveta head up to leeches and borrow some of his table doilies.

    • And that's the key...it takes a guy or two to step back from the max deal and take a pay cut to keep this type of talent together. In the NFL, the Patriots are a dynasty because Tom Brady is smart enough to take far less than he'd command on the open mark to stay put with a great coach and build weapons around him...he values rings (aka, his legacy) more than a few more dollars. If GS can do that, they will be relevant for a very long time.
    • nope it didnt!!!!!!!!!
