Learning to hunt


In the early evening, we watched this juvenile Northern Harrier (Circus cyaneus) hunting over the grassland on Bodega Head.  It was foggy and the light was dim, but it was a memorable experience -- such a handsome bird.  Note the wonderful chestnut color on the breast.

We were watching this beautiful bird between 3:30 and 4:00 pm yesterday afternoon, too. The sunlight on that chestnut color was stunning!
