Taken through the windshield.. this Rough-Legged Hawk seemed to enjoy posing while I got a few captures. They are an awesome bird to come across.. they measure from 1 1/2 feet up to 2 1/2 feet in length. They reside mainly in the US in winter but migrate up to the high Arctic to nest in spring..

    You did a fantastic job of shooting this hawk through the windshield of your car with your camera..You were at the right place at the right time...I love how it is sitting, surveying the scene.
