Jim:

I saw the Rough-legged Hawk at 70 m.p.h. It appeared to be an adult. I identified it by its white head and dark body and the fact that it was sitting on the very slimmest of twigs at the top of a bush by the road.

  Bob,

  Was your rough-legged hawk an immature bird?  Last weekend on the trail that goes around Lake Remote,  we had an immature rough-legged hawk fly over head.  I was wondering if it could be the same bird and would  it hang around the area?

    Smithville Lake was a disappointment this afternoon, unless you prefer quantity of individuals to variety of species. I could not find the Pacific Loon. There must have been 1000 Ruddy Ducks and hundreds of Gadwall, but there were few other species of ducks. Boaters kept these in the air much of the time. I walked the trail and did not find the Winter Wren. (Where on the rabbit warren of trails west of the dam has he been seen?) My best bird was a Rough-legged Hawk on the way, near the juncture of I-435 and M-291.

    Highlights included:

     At least  44 Common Loons.
    36 Bonaparte's Gulls
    11 Greater Yellowlegs on the pond at the juncture of County F and County W.
    1 imm. Bald Eagle
    both kinglets
    Myrtle and Orange-crowned Warblers
    lots of White-throated Sparrows on the trail.
