Its a Harrier!

It has long been one of my goals to snap a picture of a harrier with his or her face visible, and that moment has arrived! I honestly thought it was a big cooper’s hawk from far away, even after I had taken the photo and looked at it on my computer. Apparently, I wasn’t looking at the face…until now! What a beaut, with those amazing eyes and their awesome facial disk.

Truly one of my favorite birds
