Rough-legged Hawk


Recommended Posts

Seen in December 2021 at Loess Bluffs NWR in NW Missouri.  I'm calling this Rough-legged Hawk a light-morph immature female. Immature because of lighter eye color, light-morph because there are only two color morphs for RLHA and this is definitely not a dark morph, and last female (not 100% sure on this one) no additional banding like a male on the tail besides the dark subterminal band, white primary patches on upper wings, which the male lacks...
