Sherry and I photographed a neat bird below Grandeur Peak today....a juvenile dark Swainson's Hawk with a Rough-legged Hawk tail pattern. It is probably a hybrid, could be a Ferruginous x Swainson's hybrid but I am leaning towards Swainson's x Rough-legged. Thought some would be interested, it did not go south but went north slowly.
