Northern Harrier in the South Kettle Moraine in Waukesha County Wisconsin on March 21, 2020

Birding out in the South Kettle Moraine in Waukesha County today I had the pleasure of watching a pair of Northern Harriers. As I watched them at a distance they did some serious hunting and maybe captured something to eat on the ground as they all of the sudden they disappeared. Also called Marsh Hawks, I captured only a fraction of the great show they put on as their hunting activities moved to far away for decent photos. It was a cold morning starting out at 21 degrees, even the full sun did not warm things up because of the stiff wind out of the northwest. Images were taken on March 21, 2020.

Coming down to what be something to eat…

    Truly enjoy your pictures Jim. Not only from the natural beauty of them. But also for me I use them as a learning tool so that I can learn to id birds when I see them in their natural habitat. I’m still in the crawling stages of learning to I’d the many birds out there. But loving every moment of it. Thanks for sharing

    Great shots! Their backward flip-flops are something to see but enormously difficult to catch on camera.
