“Behold my friends, the spring is come; the earth has gladly received the embraces of the sun, and we shall soon see the results of their love!”
~ Sitting Bull (1831-1890) Chief of the Lakota Sioux Nation
The Rough-legged Hawk breeds in the arctic during the summer months, but winters in the U.S. and southern Canada. I feel fortunate whenever I see one in the spring as it migrates north back through Minnesota.
This handsome bird had a partner off in the distance. I’m hoping their nesting season is a successful one!
