Female Rough-Legged Hawk and Raven
Photographer: Teresa McGill
Location: Central Lake, MI
Story: 
We have been researching the bald eagles the last thirteen years with ten of those winters in our eagle blind. We sadly had to relocate this year. But it didn't take long during this harsh Michigan winter to start having visitors. This beautiful female rough-legged hawk spent most of the winter with us. She tried coming in to feed...only to be deterred by the crows and ravens. She would sit in a tree...they would dive bomb her. She would hover...they would attack her. This is one of many that I took of her and her 'shadow'.
