New guy on the block

New guy on the block

This is a shot of a young male Northern Harrier taken from near the photo blind parking lot.  I was hoping he might fly my way when he took off but a large tractor/lawn mower combo came by and flushed him away from me.  Still, it was nice to spot him showing some nice color changes from my previous spotting.  Ridgefield NWR, July 10, 2015.

    A long shot for that size bird bro, but pretty image!

    Gary, I agree it’s stretching the crop to its limit but sometimes you gotta live on the edge! Thanks!
