Jan 25_2018 12:04 a Rough-legged Hawk reported on eBird at 251 Gorge Rd West which is the Esquimalt Gorge Park past Gorge bridge over Tillicum Rd.
Jan 26th, took a walk out to see if I could spot it. this is a pretty park on the Gorge with snow dotted hills framing it. saw a Pied-billed Grebe and lots of Mallards, a few other random birds like Buffies & Scaup. got caught up watching the kayakers shoot the 36 ft rapids at Gorge bridge and a gold coloured Hawk flew past me down the Gorge Waterway. got a distant shot but not good enough to identify it as a Roughie. maybe someone will be lucky enough to spot it again.
