This beautiful Rough-legged Hawk was scanning the
Antelope Island dried-up lake bed on a cold February
day. Not too far from it was a Red-tailed Hawk hunting
from a
road sign on the causeway. Carol Davis 2-10-2020

This large, beautiful hawk was sitting on the fence next to the road on Antelope Island and I was able to get
pretty close for a few shots. Everyone looks forward to the arrival of these majestic birds.  Carol Davis, 11-23-2011

It was scanning the hill for food and would glance over my way periodically just to check on me.  I think
this is the same one I found kiting (hovering in the wind) further down the hill. They have a beautiful brown
 tail with a white band and it spreads out when they're hovering.
