 With my opportunities to take raptor pictures lately I am learning that some that I am seeing are not what I thought and I am seeing new birds which is cool.  This first shot is a new one I captured on a walk a last week.  I learned that from the wing pattern this is a Rough Legged Hawk, most likely a female due to the dark belly.  Rough Legged Hawks are over winter visitors that are in Kansas from October to April.  The second photo down is a recent one that I shared before in December for comparison of a Red Tail Hawk.  It is ID's by the light color wings with the prominent dark band.
