Also from the strip pits...

These are all from the strip pit yesterday...more than one hawk is involved.
This is a Northern Harrier...there are lots of them out there in the winter.
I am pretty sure that this one is NOT a Northern Harrier, but I have no idea what it is.
This is the same Northern Harrier as in the first two pics..
This is a another hawk.
I so wish this last shot of it had been in focus...still click on them to see a better view.  You can still tell he is looking at me!

Hope you enjoyed these...a Northern Harrier is about the only hawk I feel like I can recognize for sure.

Wow, they are beautiful! I don't think I've ever seen a Northern Harrier.

we see a lot of hawks by the road side and in the trees. I guess they are easier to see because there are no leaves on the trees? Great shots by the way. It's all about snakes on my blog today!!

I gave myself a neck ache this past week trying to get a clear shot of birds in flight. it is not easy to do

Photos 5 & 6 I think are Rough Legged Hawks judging by the pattern under the wings.
As for the black and white bird, maybe it's an Osprey? I really don't know.
