Bad day for a mouse.

8 posts in this topic

Today where I was parked I could see NINE rough legged hawks perched. I think we may have a rough leg invasion going on in the bog. One in particular was a little braver then the others and dove into the ditch three times to catch mice next to my car. He finally got one on the third attempt. Watching raptors is always a good time, specially when they go hunting.

What you looking at?

Wow! We got to watch the whole event. How do they do that without opposable thumbs?

Great captures Jay!....Every shot beautiful!...The bog comes through again!....Ole Hwy#7!....I believe you're right on the rough-leggeds...I've gone down there for years and have never seen such a concentration of that particular species...sure not complaining though......maybe the rough-leggeds kicked the northern hawkowl's butts ...kicked em out of dodge!...I think Ole and Lena have some competition from their cousins grin
