With occasional notes from elsewhere
I particularly like the Harrier shot. Shows the owl-like facial disk so clearly. I can just see him (?) coursing the fields, staring so intently below.
Hi!I agree -- it's hard to see the facial disc of a harrier when they're flying, especially at a distance. So this was a nice opportunity to capture that feature!Also -- it's possible this is a female, but I'm not sure. The dark rust coloration on the breast indicates a younger bird. Older males become very pale and gray, while older females retain some buffy coloration below. Someone who has more experience ageing harriers might be able to tell for sure, but I'd lean towards this being a female.:) Jackie
