Good day birders:
Among excellent sightings of diverse common raptor species today at this site during a field-trip class I led from Merritt College (Oakland),
I close looks directly over our head of one adult ROUGH-LEGGED HAWK for approximately two minutes.
It was my first sighting of this non-breeding season resident in 2017 and a “first-ever/life bird” species for the 16 attendants.
