Proving that persistence sometimes pays off. I saw this bird  three 
separate times. The first time he came and hovered right over my head. I  didn't 
have my camera. The second time I was ready but he was quite distant and  
moved away from me. The third time he came out of nowhere and circled right over 
 my head. 
(No, I don't really know if it's a "he". I believe it's a  juvenile but I'm 
not sure of that. Perhaps someone has a better idea than I how  to tell sex 
and age on a Rough-leg).
