This morning I observed a single Rough Legged Hawk at the Gig-Le-Hi-Te
Mitigated Wetland in Tacoma.

It was perched on a guard rail on the road near the far pond. It flew up as
I walked along the road, and flew across the mowed field.

It came back around a couple of times, and with the wind blowing before the
real storm came in, it was hovering over the field and seemed to be
suspended at times.

As it floated overhead, the dark patches at the "elbow" of the wings were
clearly visible, and as it maneuvered in the wind, the top of the tail
appeared white, with a black band across the tip.
