  1. Your post is really helpful in identifying this bird, I have a photo of a bird hanging around and no one could figure out what it is … now I know!

  2. Hi Wendy:

    They are beautiful in this plumage. Thanks for sending me the shot, it was certainly a dark morph Rough-legged.

    Cheers, Harold

  3. Harold, Great photos and video. Looking for info on this bird was how I found your great blog. One thing that is very useful in identifying this bird is also the way it perches. It seems to like perching on very thin, outer branches as opposed to other raptors that like a more solid inner branch. Great work!
