Checklist Comments

Snow storm and strong north wind brought an incredible flight of Rough-legged Hawks. I spent the first three hours at my usual location along the shore, then moved up to Hawk Ridge- because of the reduced visibility, most of the Rough-legs I saw in the morning could not be seen from Hawk Ridge so this checklist represents a combined count of what I saw at the two locations to show the true extent of the movement
