I saw a dark morph Rough-legged Hawk today at Sheffield, along highway #105 which borders the Saint John River at that portion of the highway. The Rough-legged was high above the trees, just a speck really, circling in the sky, but my camera lense was able to pull it in close enough for me to id it. I have seen Rough-legged Hawks there other winters and they were not always as distant as this one was. By far my best photo of a Rough-legged is this one, with its wings raised upward showing its distinctive under wing pattern as it landed on a tree branch. This photo was taken in December, 2002 in the Sheffield area.The under wing pattern of the light morph Rough-legged Hawk has more white on it than the dark morph as its axillaries and coverts are light also. To the left is a light morph Rough-legged showing its pale head and chest. The dark morph adult has no white on its head or chest. These photos of the white morph Rough-legged Hawk were taken at Sheffield in December, 2006.
