FOS (First of the Season) Rough-legged Hawk

Today, I went out looking for Snowbuntings, Lapland Longspurs, Shrikes, Rough-legged Hawks and other winter residents. 

As I drove along the ridge, I spotted this Rough-legged Hawk as it winged it's way westward:

Unfortunately, it was to be the only one I saw and the only winter resident I was out looking for that I found. 

I did come across many Juncos, a few Cardinals, a flock of Am Tree Sparrows and this Mourning Dove:

He's pretty cool eh? 

I captured this photo as the sun was setting. 
I think it's pretty cool with the light rays pouring out of the clouds.

Happy Birding!
