Hello North Bay Hawk Watchers. Year of the Roughies, (rough-legged hawk) 2012.
GGRO: 14 total, 4 of them last week.
Sonoma and Marin local birders have upwards of a dozen sightings as well. With many sightings up here in SoCo the last few weeks. Very exciting. It's been a few years since I've witnessed such a influx of this hawk.
Beautiful bird, Roger Marlowe, not only documented, but he also photographed a couple of them at the Jenner hawk watch site. Finally the Jenner Headlands Hawk Watch can add this relevant data to the season and Roger's sightings have made it a 5 buteo year! That's good nature! that's good work!
thank-you all for your hard work, generous knowledge and kind friendship, In a natural world that never ceases to amaze...everyday is great when you get nature.
