Welcome Sight!

Kicking off the month of July (7/1/2016) at the Ridgefield NWR with an appearance by the Gray Ghost—the male Northern Harrier.  I was talking with my brother in our cars near marker #12 and we suddenly spotted this fellow hovering out in the field.  I jumped out of my vehicle and began shooting as the bird flew behind our vehicles. (Visitors are allowed out of their vehicles during summer months on the auto tour route).  Best viewed using large view link below!
