Hawks and mountains--more of Westcliffe,CO

The Wet Mountain Valley where Westcliffe and Lake DeWeese are located provides many opportunities to see hawks. In winter, there are usually several Rough-legged Hawks though I only found one yesterday and I got the distant pic of it shown at the top (it was well over a hundred feet away). However I did see 8 Red-tailed Hawks during the half day I birded that area.
The scenic mountains such as these in the Sangre de Christo range provide a great backdrop to birding in this area.
