Ron Shields sent along this photo of a Light-morph Rough-legged Hawk, the star of yesterday’s walk on the Kingsland landfill. We had several rewarding looks.
The raptor was hunting the windward side of the landfill, where our walk took place. At the end of the walk, many of us saw this visitor from the North again from our vantage point in DeKorte Park. Very cool.
We planned the walk a year ago. The Rough-leg was nice enough to arrive Friday and stick around. How’s that for lucky timing?
We will post the full bird list later today.
