- Toby Tobkin is reporting that she saw an imm. Rough-legged Hawk on
Wednesday (12/06/06) at 11:00 AM. The location was just North of
Hunter's Lagoon on a fence Post. Hunter's Lagoon is off of Stoneboro
Rd. which connects to Highway 1 just South of Manchester.
She also reported 4 Swans (presumed Tundra)in the Brush Creek Wetlands
which is just North of the lagoon.
Richard Hubacek for Toby.
- I believe this is a Rough-legged Hawk - looks like light juv.
Saw it here in Round Valley, hanging around the intersection of Fairbanks Rd and hwy 162, several times today.
- 27 March 2009 - Friday - The Rough-legged Hawk was still near the Fairbanks Lane/Hwy 162/Poonkinney Road junctions as reported yesterday by Charles. I saw no other raptors in Round Valley other than Red-tailed Hawks and Am. Kestrels. A House Wren (my first for the year) was singing near the Eel River Ranger camp area ....no Canyon Wrens could be found. Good birding. Bob Keiffer

- Hi, All,
Yesterday afternoon at Navarro Point headlands south of Albion at about 4 PM we saw a rough-legged hawk soaring and hovering.
The rough-legged hawk tried to use the prime hovering spot above the hills on the east side of the highway but two red-legged hawks had already claimed the territory and ganged up on it, ordering it to 'move on' - which it did.
