Rough-legged Hawk

Rough-legged hawk, pen and ink We returned to the area north of Davis this morning where the hawks had been seen. We found the rough-legged perched on a tussock in a field; we found the Western gull preening along the berm where it had been seen yesterday; and Roger caught up with us in time to see the blue goose found by Gil and to take us to where he had seen the ferruginous hawk — which then put in a brief but unequivocal appearance.

Song sparrow, common moorhen, and a Wilson’s snipe at the North Davis Pond has brought my BIGBY total to exactly 100. In February, we’ll do laundry.
