This Rough-legged Hawk (Buteo lagopus) was photographed this past winter at Farmington Bay Wildlife Management Area in northern Utah. Rough-legged Hawks breed in the Arctic so we don’t see them around here in the summer.

I didn’t notice until after I published “Birds of Antelope Island” yesterday that it was my 400th post on this blog.

This blog has been visited by people from 154 countries since I started writing it. It is awesome to reach out and touch so many viewers from so many locations!

Rough-legged Hawk – Nikon D300, f6.3, 1/1250, ISO 640, +0.7 EV, Nikkor 200-400mm VR with 1.4x TC at 350mm, natural light, not baited

Mia McPherson is a nature lover, wildlife watcher and an avian photographer. Mia first become serious about bird photography when she moved to Florida in 2004. Her recent move to the Salt Lake area of Utah was a great opportunity to continue observing their behavior and photographing them. With so many birds species there easily accessible it wasn’t long before she was hooked. By learning more about each species, she can anticipate their behaviour and create opportunities to obtain ever better images of those species.
