[va-bird] Rough-legged Hawk at Montressor Road

VA Birders,
 
I went to look for the Shrike at Montessor Road north of Leesburg this  
morning with no luck.  However, as I was driving around on the same road I  saw 
something hovering in a field to the east about half a mile north of  where the 
Shrike had been spotted.  I thought to myself that this had to be  an RL Hawk.  
The bird landed and I was able to get great looks in my scope  as it sat in a 
small tree.  It appeared to be a juvemile bird with a very  light head.  It 
also had a dark belly, feathers down to its feet, and a  generally stocky look 
to it.  It was still sitting there when I left.
