    Buteos

    Here's a couple buteos:

    A Broad-winged Hawk, a forest species, and a fairly tame one at that!

    And a Rough-legged Hawk, a northern species. Quite often I spot these in the winter, which surprises meI didn't know a hawk like this could survive a Manitoba winter, but they are from the Arctic!

    Nice shots. I was on my way to a family event yesterday and there was a hawk just standing on the side of the interstate. I wish I would have spotted him sooner. I would have pulled over and got a few close up shots of it. Oh well some day I'll get some good shots.

    They're sometimes tricky eh? I always hate that when I see something interesting when I'm driving or at at work, then I get angry because I didn't bring my camera with!

    I see SO many raptors between my house and work, there are a lot of fields and spaces they like to hunt in. its not unusual for me to see red tails, rough legs, ferruginous, and swainson's. there was even a swainson's nest on a road I frequently take to work, I got to see the little ones grow up a little more each day.

    Cool! We have a bald eagle nest here by the Red River, but it view is obscured by the trees on the roadside, so I haven't managed a pic yet.

    I'd love to see that Swainson's nest!

    yeah they're gone now, but I know where a few golden eagle nesting spots are, the only problem is they're way up on clifsides and fairly inaccessible (in terms of getting close enough for a good photo), but they can be seen from the freeway.

    this is a shot with mom in the nest but this is WAY far away at 500mm and severely cropped:

    Nice! I've never actually seen a wild Golden Eagle, we have very few here. Great picture!
