Northern harrier (Circus cyaneus) flying low
It was pure serendipity. I was looking for shore birds...and apparently so was this hawk.
Is that dinner below?
The northern harrier's diet varies, adapting it according to habitat and time of year. Small to medium-sized rodents, birds and sometimes even adult waterfowl are its tasty victims. Flying slow, northern harriers hunt just above vegetation in zigzag patterns using acoustic clues to make surprise attacks.
