Birding on a very warm Sunday in January

Rough Legged Hawk

The foothills of Southern Alberta

A shy Great Horned Owl

Sunday was a gorgeous day, with temperatures of +17 C (that's about 63 F for those of you who don't do Celsius).  T-shirt weather.  Very unusual in Southern Alberta in January--we were the hot spot in Canada yesterday.  It was an excellent day to go looking for birds, though we didn't see very many.  It is, after all, really January although it felt like spring.  We had a good raptor day, seeing 3 Rough Legged Hawks, one Great Horned Owl, and one Bald Eagle (that just flew swiftly by and didn't pose for a photo).
