Rough-Legged Hawks Return

In the last few days, I've seen a few hawks that just don't seem quite right for red-tails and they definitely aren't harriers, so I've been watching for confirmation that the rough-legged hawks were starting their winter migration to or through the area. Today I saw a hawk with a white underside and black wing-tips that has to be a rough-legged hawk (probably a juvenile), so I know they are starting to come back. It won't be long before the red-tails start moving south, leaving the fields to the rough-leggeds.
