1202_0825 Rough-legged Hawk

This Rough-legged Hawk was circling over some prairie hills - very small in my viewfinder, but not high because it was clearly hunting rodents. I stopped my car, and sure enough, it drifted over for one low pass. I made this shot from inside the vehicle. Then the hawk went off to continue its search for a meal. Grasslands National Park, Saskatchewan.
