Juvenile Rough-legged Hawk- Buteo lagopus
by Bryce W. Robinson
I haven’t been taking photos of raptors lately. I think I need to devote my next free day to hitting the open western road, solely in search of raptors.
I took this photo last winter at Farmington Bay, in Utah. I miss that place. Idaho has good raptors, but nothing compares to the close looks that you obtain at Farmington Bay.
Great shot, I was with you! I miss going out for raptors, hopefully we’ll get out soon
I hope so too! I know I was with you. You put me in the perfect spot, which meant you couldn’t get a shot. I felt bad and asked if you were sure you didn’t want a shot at it. You replied saying that you had numerous photos of roughies on that same tree. Anyway, thanks for the set up! Like always, I owe it to you.
Nice shot Bryce!
I always say “you don’t owe me anything”, but you do.
Ha! I am well aware of it, and mark my words, someday and somehow I’ll pay the debt.
Let luck be with you. Finding good roughie opportunities here seems more difficult than normal this winter.
Interesting. Well that’s too bad Mike. Maybe as the winter heads to spring, the opportunities will become more available. Anyway, I hope they do.
We miss you.
That makes me smile Mia. We definitely didn’t get to spend enough time together, chasing birds. Maybe sometime soon, if I make it down to Utah before this summer.
