Northern Harrier

Today, while driving along highway #105, at Keswick Ridge, we suddenly saw a harrier rise out of the ditch directly alongside of our car and fly over the adjacent field holding steadfast to its prey. We knew it was going to land soon and so I quickly pulled over and grabbed for my camera and just kept on clicking! What a grand photo opportunity presented to us of this handsome adult male Northern Harrier. This was my second harrier sighting of the week. On Tuesday (April 10th) I had seen another adult male in a field along highway#105 near Sheffield. (see photo below)
