Passing this along.
From Andrew Landsman,
Moodus CT - 9/6/14 approximately 12.30 pm. Light Phase rough legged hawk over Moodus backyard. A beautiful sight to behold !
(I was told that the date was very early for this species, and I asked Andrew for more specifics. He replied.)
Hi Roy. Saw large buteo -
looked different - long wings. Single bird. Soaring over tree tops, no
flapping observed. Pretty flat dihedral. Light patches on head, under
body and towards tail - light banding towards end of tail. Dark patches towards end of wings on either side. I live not far from the
Connecticut river and a 1/4 from Moodus lake. If you want to disallow
bird, due to lack of photo or time frame - that's fine by me. I'm
confident that's what is was. Just thought I'd report it...Maybe
another one will show up somewhere !
