Hawks on the move?

Postby silverowl » Sat Feb 11, 2017 10:02 pm

Hi all,

I don't know much about hawks...but I have seen several Red tailed and lots...well, okay, about a dozen Rough- legged Hawks in the Petoskey area the last two weeks. Are they (all the hawks) on the move or is this about normal? I know that times when I have traveled south, (spring break time) I have counted many (over 200) along the expressways once we hit Illinois or Indiana. I assume those guys are on the move north, but isn't this a bit early?
(Still not seeing the Snowy's in the Petoskey area much)

With the weather so crappy for the last month, haven't been out looking much... need to get out more. Haven't even seen a Rough Legged yet... nor been out looking for some Snowies... Hubster saw one Snowy Owl last weekend when he was over near Chum's Corner last weekend. I saw about 5 crows pestering and chasing a RT today while on my way to the grocery store. I'm sucking at birding lately.
