Northern Harrier

Wile visiting a wildlife refuge recently I spotted this female Northern Harrier resting in some reeds. They are very striking birds, and normally very shy. This one appeared more cooperative than usual and I was able to get a few sharp shots. They have a ring of lighter colored feathers around their face and a a group of white feathers at the base of their tail, that is quite visible when in flight. Enjoy!
