Rough-legged Hawk with vole prey

Rough-legged Hawk (Buteo lagopus) flying away with freshly caught vole and grass in its talon. Lemmings and voles make up the bulk of this hawk’s diet, but it will also hunt other small mammals and birds. The Rough-legged Hawk is a diurnal (daytime), and sometimes crepuscular (dusk and dawn), hunter that pursues prey from a perched or hovering position.
