20110131 530 SERIES - Rough-legged Hawk HP.jpg

Amherst Island

Four consecutive images of a Rough-legged Hawk preparing for take-ff, then taking off. We found this Hawk sitting on a hydro wire. After we took some shots, the hawk obliged us by flying off to this nearby tree. Some more shots and the Hawk had had enough.

Top image: The Hawk looks back and seems to be getting annoyed at our presence.


The Hawk prepares for take-off.
