Thread: Dark morph Rough-legged Hawk/Buzzard

    Default Dark morph Rough-legged Hawk/Buzzard

    I know you don't get much experience with dark morph Roughlegs on the other side of the pond, but I was wondering if anyone had any opinions on the age/sex of this bird. I think it is an adult male but am open to other options.

    Hi Drew.

    In my eyes it looks good as a dark morph RLH, a male due to tail bands.
