 Rough-legged Hawk

Rough-legged Hawk

Lincoln Co WA

Most large raptors can't perch on wires this small. Rough-legged Hawks have small feet so it works for them.

Canon EOS 7D ,Canon EF 600mm f/4L IS USM
1/250s f/8.0 at 840.0mm iso320 full exif

other sizes: small medium original

Thanks for the explanation. I was wondering how such a large bird could balance like that. Very pretty hawk.
