Weekly Photo Challenge:Escape

rough legged hawkFriends, this rough-legged hawk has escaped from our summery weather back to his frosty north land.  This is a dark phase hawk who hung around later than usual this spring.  The dark patch in the wrist area is the id mark that i look for to identify this bird.  We are also escaping, running away to the badlands where it is typically hot and dry, a desert area with clay ridges and cliffs.  til Tomorrow MJ
