Unusual Sightings

On our drive today we saw hawks skimming the fields. I am not sure what kind of hawk this is. Could it be a Rough-legged Hawk?
It was amazing to watch these hawks hovering.

Trumpeter Swans and ducks in a saturated field at a highway intersection.
Mallards on heaps in another field. There was a watery area below.
White-tailed Deer (Odocoileus virginianus)
Usually the only species of deer I see are Mule Deer, so this was a complete surprise.
