I still haven’t had many opportunities with Rough-legged Hawks this year but I am hoping that the snow that we are having will bring them into the areas where I find and photograph them here in Utah.
The first great opportunity I had with them this year was this male Rough-legged Hawk perched on a stump at Bear River National Wildlife Refuge in Box Elder County and so far… it has been my best opportunity.
I have been back to Bear River National Wildlife Refuge several times since I photographed this handsome hawk and each time I go I look for him to be perched in the same spot. It is simply wishful thinking on my part I am sure but you just never know. I probably should head back up there soon just to check it out.
Life is good.
