Rough-Legged Hawk on the Marsh (20120221-142431-PJG)
I am going to say this up front. This is an extreme crop! The shot is taken at the maximum range of my lens as well.
I spent the afternoon out on the Tantramar Marshes, hoping to see the Snowy again, but no luck. In fact, the bird life was either rather scarce and skittish, or we just couldn't spot them. I got a one shot of this Dark Morphed Adult Male Rough-Legged Hawk before he took off never to be seen again. This is also my first spotting of one.
Needless to say, I am not pleased by lack of game.
Taken on the Tantramar Marshes, outside of Sackville, New Brunswick, Canada on 21 Feb 2012.
