'This 'Rough Legged Buzzard' (Buteo lagopus) -- called the Rough Legged Hawk in North America -- is a medium large bird of prey. Found in Arctic and Subarctic regions, it migrates south for winter -- to places like Kansas with its open fields yielding possible food. Its feathers usually extend down its legs, an adaptive feature of living in Arctic regions. This particular bird appears to have a 'band' on its left leg, probably placed there to track migration patterns. It is also carefully eying this potential intruder. (Zoom in for view of eyes.)'
