A Few Raptor Moments - 23 Jan 2016

I drove out to Willow Run Airport in Romulus, MI (Wayne Co.) to look for Snowy Owls (nope) and possible Rough-legged Hawks (yep). A single, light-phased juvenile Rough-legged Hawk was kiting over the berms just south of the airport service road. Unfortunately it was severely backlit and provided only poor looks.

A pair of Red-tailed Hawks were perched next to each other at the foot of Tyler Rd, but flushed as I drove near. I could only manage a quick flight shot as they both flew off. One perched momentarily before continuing on. I felt bad that my presence disturbed them...
