NOTES FOR SEPTEMBER 1990 Rough-legged Hawk - Don and Lee Richardson September 1, 1990 At 10:30 AM on Saturday, September 1, 1990, a Rough-legged Hawk was sighted at Challenger Park (Harris County). It was relocated again at 11:30 on the same morning. Observations were made through high resolution binoculars and through a Bausch & Lomb "Discoverer" telescope set to about 30X magnification. Conditions were clear and the light was excellent. At first glance, the long tail, long wings, and dihedral wing posture gave the impression of a Turkey Vulture. As the bird banked slightly the dorsal side came into view. The tail (top) was white at the base gradually changing to dark at the end. The remainder of the dorsal side was dark except for some sparse white mottling at about the center of each wing. The under tail was very light with a wide dark subterminal band. Additional banding was not evident on this individual. The under wing was generally light. Dark carpal patches were very pronounced. Dark (but less pronounced) commas were present outside and separated from the carpal marks. The trailing edge of the under wing coverts were darker than the surrounding area giving the impression of a dark irregular and poorly defined line from the rear of the commas to the body. The legs appeared to be more heavily feathered than most hawks but I could not see if they were "feathered to the foot". Noteworthy behavior included not only the dihedral wing posture mentioned above but also extensive hovering. When the hawk was about fifty feet high it faced into the wind, flapped its wings slowly for stability and remained stationary. When stability was attained it stopped flapping and with only slight movements of the tail remained absolutely still as if suspended. It continued to move the head as it looked about. After about 30 seconds the wings flapped a few strokes to regain stability then the bird again remained motionless for another 30 to 45 seconds. The first observation was made from the large parking area looking north. The hawk was soaring high in the air and was about 100 yards away. It was observed as it
