White Northern Harrier
4

Did some hanging around the park this morning in an open field. In the past I have submitted photos of a Northern Harrier.

Looks like this:

The other day near a pond at the park I came across a bird that was new to me, and after comparing notes with two other dedicated photographers we all decided it was a bird none of us had seen.

After going through the photos I did get it turns out that the male Northern Harrier is white and that is what we all saw for the first time.

So this morning there were multiple harriers and hawks hunting and soaring and I was fortunate to once again see the male Northern Harrier.

Here's where he was to begin with:

Can you see him?

After I trudged through the mud and ankle-twisting furrows to get close the bird took off and I figured that was it. But nope, he stuck around and I got a few keepers.

Heckova nice morning!
