Rough-legged Hawk At Skinner Lane I made a quick stop by Skinner Lane today and got lucky with this beautiful Rough-legged Hawk. What a surprise to find this beautiful very dark Rough-legged Hawk today at Skinner Lane. Here’s a good look at the under wing pattern. RLHA at Skinner Lane 2-3-13. From my car I watched this bird hunt over a small field for nearly 45 minutes and it did not seem bothered by my presence, but as you can see from this photo, the hawk definitely knew I was there. When I left the bird was in the same tree looking away from me and scanning the field below. Here’s a couple more: RLHA at Skinner Lane 2-3-13 RLHA at Skinner Lane 2-3-13.
