This Rough-legged Hawk (Buteo lagopus) was photographed this past winter at Farmington Bay Waterfowl Management Area in northern Utah.
Rough-legged Hawks breed in the Arctic so we don’t see them around here in the summer.
I didn’t notice until after I published “Birds of Antelope Island” yesterday that it was my 400th post on this blog. This blog has been visited by people from 154 countries since I started writing it. It is awesome to reach out and touch so many viewers from so many locations!
