Rough-legged Hawk soaring above the Canning river valley in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Alaska.
The rough-legged hawk is a graceful and agile flyer, able to navigate the winds and thermals of the Arctic with ease. The rough-legged hawk is a master of the skies, hunting for small mammals on the tundra.
