Today was a big day for hawks and raptors.  At one point I saw several raptors all working the same hillside, including: light-phase Rough-legged Hawk, four Red-tailed Hawks, a couple Harriers, an American Kestrel, and a Red-shouldered Hawk tearing apart prey on top of a gas well head.  Earlier in the day I also saw the Rough-legged Hawk eating a mouse on the side of the road.  Check it out below.

Crazy good stuff! The raw carnivorous expression on this bird sends shivers up my spine. THAT is wild. Bravo!
