Few Raptors and Winter Scenes

I was out looking for Snow Buntings last week when we stumbled upon this Rough-legged Hawk (light phase)

We also found an American Kestrel sitting on a natural perch, not a wire!

I also found a few Bald Eagles...at a distance:

And some of the owl pellets I got from a friend to dissect for my 8th graders:

Check out the size of the bottom tooth that came out of the bottom jaw!
