Snow hawks

This past weekend I was down in Lancaster County where there was a fresh covering of snow on the fields. The new snow on the ground provided excellent opportunities for photographing raptors as the reflection off of the snow lit up the undersides of the hawks. I took these photos near Wakefield in southern Lancaster County while I was out looking for a spot that Short-eared Owls had been reported recently.

I think the farmer was dumping dead animals out in the fields which was drawing in large numbers of vultures.
